Thousands descended upon LCCS’s Williams Lake Campus this weekend for the annual and beloved Medieval Market.

Whether you love craft fairs, Christmas or just shopping local, there were almost as many reasons as vendors to check out the Medieval Market this year. With 105 total vendors, the phrase ‘there is something for everyone’ was truer than usual with baked goods, handmade jewellery and more all available for purchase.

As far as entertainment goes, the Medieval Market couldn’t be beaten with hours of musical entertainment planned on two separate stages throughout Saturday and Sunday. Local favourites like the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddle Society, Harry Jennings and Sharon Hoffman along with the Interstellar Jays, Quintet Plus and the Cariboo Mens Choir all provided jaunty tunes to shop to.

All proceeds raised from admission fees, concession and door prizes will go straight back to the students of SD27.
