Wells Winter Kick Off

In 1938, the price of gold was $35.00 an ounce and Wells had a population of 4000 people. In celebration of those times, 80 years later, Wells is still getting “In the Mood” for winter by offering old-fashioned fun and prices on the weekend of November 17th and 18th .

Cedar Swags once hung on many doors and walls in Wells in the winter. These bundles were made with fresh Cariboo-rainforest cedar boughs. Now we're inviting you to join us in Wells to create your own cedar swag with ribbons, ornaments, cones, and other recycled decorations. Bring your own memorable ornaments and create your personal swag. 

  1. Join us anytime from 12-4pm Sat. and Sun. At The Frog On The Bog Gifts and Coffee, located in the historic Willow River Inn on the main highway in Wells. It's the most wonderful place to do your Christmas shopping and supports over 40 BC artists, artisans and families. From hand knitted socks to, locally written books to beautifully crafted jewelry. Complimentary boughs, decorations and materials will be supplied to make your own Cedar Swag
  2. The Sunset Theater on Pooley Street is another historic building in Wells, and to celebrate the era that weekend The Sunset will be running two shows. Enjoy an old-fashioned family matinee at 3pm and relive the wonder of White Christmas at 7pm Saturday. Where else can you still get a movie, popcorn and hot chocolate for just $5.00!
  3. In addition to these historic annual activities you can also take a stroll around the uptown and enjoy the Island Mountain Arts “Mini Mural Auction, open 9-5pm, grab a cappuccino at the Amazing Space Art Gallery, open 2-6pm.
