Allied Arts Council rings in the season early with Christmas at casa

E-mail Print

I hate to use the C word in November, unless it stands for Christmas at casa, which runs at casa, Nov. 17 and 18.

 It is a chance to get your Christmas shopping done early while supporting local artisans.

“We have a lot of new vendors and also some exciting new artisans,” said Allied Arts Council Communications Manager Kelaine Devine, estimating there are 48 booths featuring works by approximately 200 artisans including woodturning and textiles surface design guild members will be participating in the  beloved Lethbridge event.


She noted they had to limit the number of participants due to space issues at casa.


Kelaine is most excited about several new  jewelry vendors including Midnight Sun Elegance.


“ They make indigenous inspired jewelry,” Devine said adding the artisans have been hard at work for most of the year creating items to sell at Christmas at casa. She is also excited about new vendors selling bath bombs and a variety of others selling crafts and goods.

There will also be treats as well alive music throughout the event. 


“ It’s a nice chance to buy local and support local artisans, mom and pop companies,” she said.


“ When you come to Christmas at casa you’re supporting your neighbours and the local economy,” she said.


“I enjoy talking to people about all the great things they bought at Christmas at casa. They are so excited to share their purchases. That’s my favourite part of  the event,” Devine enthused.


“ We’re just hoping we have good weather for Christmas at casa,” Devine continued.


 Christmas at casa runs  5-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17 and  10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18.

 Admission is free but patrons are encourage to bring donations for the Lethbridge Food bank.
