About

The Surrey Skill Share Fair took place three times between 2014 and 2016. The Fair is no longer active. We are grateful for the support and participation of all the fantastically creative people that made this fair possible over the years!

Skill Share Fairs are free events that invite people to share and learn all kinds of useful, handy, and practical skills.

The first Surrey Skill Share Fair took place in October 2014. You can read a summary of the 2015 Skill Share Fair here or watch this video by the Vancouver Foundation:
