The Surrey Skill Share Fair is a one-day festival filled with teaching and learning all kinds of useful, handy, and practical skills. The Skill Share Fair is on Sunday, October 19th, 10 am to 4 pm at the Surrey Nature Centre. The Fair is free to attend!
“Consider this a community festival for sharing, teaching and learning new and practical skills,” says one of the festival organizers, Peter Leblanc, “experience something you have been curious about, or try out a new hobby.”

- African drumming and rhythm

“The idea of a community event where people from all backgrounds can come together…to learn from each other, have fun, make some connections, and go home with new ideas, inspiration, and a few skills…is very exciting!” remarked Jenn Swanson, Creator & Host of the Communication Diva Podcast. Workshops presenters receive a thank you gift and some delicious food.
The public is invited to participate in specific workshops or ongoing demonstrations. A schedule will be available in mid-October on the website and at the event. The event is supported through the Oak Avenue Hub’s Neighbourhood Small Grant Program and in partnership with Village Surrey and the Surrey Nature Centre.
