About our CRAFTFEST 2017 location
When searching for a venue, Gareth + Amanda wanted a location that added to the rich creative history that will be showcased at CRAFTFEST 2017. It wasn't about finding a mainstream storefront or a conference centre/tradeshow location - but rather what space could add to the creative history and inspiring vibe of our craft community and also showcase the future of our city.
We found ZIBI. With the historic brick buildings, nestled between Ottawa + Gatineau, accessible from downtown and Westboro via bike/walk/transit/car.... As soon as you walk into the venue it takes your breath away. The exposed brick and wood beams, the Ottawa river running by right outside the windows. There is nothing like it in Ottawa, and for two weeks in June it will be home to our Craft community to celebrate Canada's 150th.
