Cocktails and Crafts comes to Eckville Hotel

On Wednesday, December 14 from 7-10 p.m. – residents will gather for Cocktails and Crafts.

The Eckville Hotel will play host to a brand new event to Eckville that promises to liven up your night life.

On Wednesday, December 14 from 7-10 p.m. residents will gather for Cocktails and Crafts. The event will feature the artistic direction of Jolene Hughes leading a group through the creation of light up Christmas signs.

Organizer Mandy Gefle, who organized the Summer Market and Food Truck Nights, sees this as another opportunity to bring the people of Eckville together.

“We noticed there are a lot of women’s craft nights going on lately,” she said. “It’s a really good opportunity for people to get together so we decided to do something like that in Eckville. Eckville is local to me. I know people around here and I wanted to bring a community night life event here.”

Gefle explained bringing in Hughes was an easy choice for this event and that Hughes has plenty of awesome designs to offer to those who attend the event.

“Jolene has been travelling all over Central Alberta,” Gefle said. “She has done one in Rimbey and has one coming up in Sylvan.”

Tickets to the evening are available for $45, which includes the cost of one drink. Gefle hopes the event is successful so it can be brought back to Eckville in the future.

“We are hoping to bring it back to Eckville again,” she said. “Everyone is welcome and I hope everyone will take the opportunity to come support the event. It should be a really fun time.”

If you would like to register event, visit and search “Crafts and Cocktails Eckville” where you can purchase tickets. Space is limited and Gefle encourages everyone to register as soon quickly as spots will fill up.
