Spring Craft Show Coming Soon

For many visitors, this is a tradition they look forward to every year,” says Meghan Arnott, Signature Events & Youth Program Coordinator for the BCC. “There’s something here for everyone – crafters who have been supporting us for years, as well as some new vendors who are showcasing their unique products. It’s also the environment of the beautiful parklike setting at the BCC that brings folks back.

The Spring Craft Show is recognized as one of the premier shows of its kind in the Kawarthas, presenting high-quality handcrafted items. The show takes place at the BCC in the main building and Festival Park in enclosed pavilions.

The show runs Saturday, May 18 from 10am to 5pm and Sunday, May 19 from 10am to 4pm.  General admission is $5 and children 12 and under are admitted free of charge. Your admission gives you the chance to win a $100 Shopping Spree at the 2024 Harvest Craft Show. There is free parking and a free shuttle bus from the upper parking lot to the show.

Meghan says, “It’s going to be a busy summer at the BCC. We have Canada Day on July 1, the Buckhorn Festival of the Arts August 17 & 18, BCC Classic Car & Truck Show September 14 and the Harvest Craft Show on Thanksgiving weekend. We also have Tuesday night Cruise nights with classic cars, ongoing fitness programs, summer camps for kids and a lot more. It’s a pretty busy place.”

Would you mortgage your home to help build a community centre?

Well, a group of like minded community residents gathered around the campfire and came up with the idea of building a larger facility to hold dances, bingo’s and parties. Alas, the bank wanted to be reassured that someone was going to pay the mortgage. The following residents guaranteed the bank that indeed the money would be paid back and signed papers guaranteeing that the mortgage.

40+ years ago a group of very special people had a dream and a vision. They saw the need for a community centre in Buckhorn. These courageous and generous people actually did mortgage their homes to realize their dream. With the help of Wintario funding, they built our Buckhorn Community Centre.
