Support Local & Handmade
At Crafts at the Kiln we pride ourselves on creating fun and engaging events that encourage our community to shop local and support handmade. Now more than ever, our small businesses need your support.
HOMETOWN FOR THE HOLIDAYS IS BACK!
The Burning Kiln pavilion will once again be decorated for the holidays, complete with a large holiday tree and bonfire style patio heaters. Strict Covid protocols will be in place, including masking when not eating/drinking. Admission is FREE but we will be accepting donations for the Woodland Cultural Centre Brantford, Ontario (the traditional territory of the Haudensaunee and Anishnaabeg. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and directly adjacent to Haldimand Treaty territory).
On Friday night we will be hosting our NIGHT MARKET from 6-10pm. Shop and drink inside and catch up with friends outside at our bonfire while listening to only the best holiday tunes!
Saturday is our day market from 11am-5pm. Grab a beer or glass of wine and wander the vineyards at Burning Kiln Winery with your friends and family, a perfect opportunity to snap some winter pics!

COVID SAFETY INFO
Do I need to show proof of vaccination to attend?
Our event is outdoors in a covered pavilion so we will not be requiring proof of vaccine. However, we strongly encourage everyone attending to be vaccinated for their own safety and the safety of those who are immunocompromised.
What other safety measures are you taking?
Safety measures such as distancing and masking when not eating or drinking will be strictly enforced on site. There will be one entrance and one exit to allow us to monitor capacity. All other doors will be open for airflow but roped off (heaters will be pumping to keep us warm). There will be lots of hand sanitizer available, including at vendors’ booths.
If you have any other questions or concerns please contact us and we will get back to you ASAP. Please be kind, our priority is to keep our vendors and shoppers safe.
Burning Kiln Winery
Situated on a former tobacco tract, the picturesque winery has been built to preserve the historic charm of its original wooden structure while allowing visitors to view much of the operation from behind giant, contemporary glass walls. Inside, a wonderfully functional, modern working winery shares its secrets of the complete winemaking process while maintaining the warmth of the original wood structure. Tours offer a chronological step through the winemaking practice including the steps of pressing, fermentation, barrel ageing and bottling and speaks to what makes us truly unique.
The winery boasts a most striking of settings perched atop the escarpment overlooking the UNESCO-designated Long Point Bay World Biosphere Reserve. The property is adorned with a comfortable patio, hiking and biking trails and other award-winning activities to be experienced at Long Point Eco-Adventures, adjacent to the property on Front Road in St. Williams, Ontario.
