During the event the District of Sparwood had a booth set up informing residents of the many goings-on in the community of Sparwood, as well as offering those who stopped by a chance to enter to win one of two District of Sparwood gift baskets. The Sparwood Public library was also fundraising and selling used books for a great deal.

From fresh baked items, hair products, home decor, crafts and more the venue was full of vendors and guests who enjoyed the Small Business and Craft Sale.
