The Mandate

The Cranberry Fair ’s mandate is two-fold.

It strives to present to its visitors a high quality sale of arts & fine crafts handmade in the Yukon.

It also strives to ensure to its exhibitors ample visitation of an educated audience expecting to see highly professional arts and crafts.

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

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

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

All work must be handmade in the Yukon or in Atlin.

Selection by the jurors is based on the following four criteria, set 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.
