Grand River Bead Show

While not happening this year because of Covid,
check out events from the last bead show in 2019

2021 Bead Show Update

We are sad to announce that the Grand River Bead Society (Artisan Beads, Jewellery, and Fibre Arts,) planned for October 2021, is postponed until next year. 

Apologies to all who were looking forward to the show. The COVID-19 situation may improve by October, but we need several months advance planning time in order to put on a good event. We are confident that the Show will be back, bigger and better, in 2022!

In the meantime get a feel for the kind of fun you can expect at the Bead Show.
