We're a tightly curated, vendor-run, craft art and design fair located in the heart of the established Old Strathcona retail district in Edmonton, Canada. The fair has been blowin’ through town since 2007, has a ferocious following of supportive customers, and dare we say it gets better and better each season.
The fair pops up for a weekend only three times a year with top-notch makers, designers, illustrators and assorted hangers-on showing their work and they bring some of the most vivid design, art and craft in the country. The fair revels in all things local and independent and acts a springboard and showcase for the area's creative endeavours.
The Royal Bison Fair pops up in the territory of the nations of Treaty No. 6 and of the Métis and Blackfoot nations. The Royal Bison is committed to anti-racism. We work to create a welcoming, supportive, and capacity-building environment to show amazing work from our diverse maker community!
