The Mandate

The Cranberry Fair ’s mandate is two-fold.

  1. The Fair strives to present to its visitors a high quality sale of arts & fine crafts handmade in the Yukon.
  2. The Fair also strives to ensure to its exhibitors ample visitation of an educated audience expecting to see ornate displays of sophisticated arts and crafts.

To achieve these goals emphasis is placed on the quality of the work presented at the fair.

Therefore a jury selection is in place.

All applicants are asked to submit portfolios and provide samples of their work which will be reviewed by a group of jurors. The Jury group  will select the participants for the next fair. 

Finally the event venue is carefully chosen to provide a spacious and elegant environment, where arts and crafts can be displayed appropriately, where visitors feel inspired, and exhibitors are able to showcase their works in the best possible way.

The following values are prerequisites for all work to be accepted for the selection process.

  • All work must be handmade in the Yukon.
  • Work intended for the fair cannot be available year round at regular store outlets.

Selection by the jurors is based on the following 4 criteria, imposed by its founder and host, the Northern Fibres Guild:

Quality, Creativity, Originality and Diversity.

Each year the fair organizers choose a different group of jurors to ensure a broader scope of selection.
