Holiday Fair & Craft Bazaar

November 17  & 18, 2017


Friday, November 17 from 6 - 10 pm
Saturday, November 18 from 10 am - 5 pm


Everybody knows that hand-made gifts are from the heart. The annual Holiday Fair & Craft Bazaar is celebrating its 15th year by offering an array of gorgeous, affordable, handmade gifts from a juried selection of 60 local entrepreneurs, artists, and designers.

Here you’ll find one-of-a-kind jewelry, home goods, clothing, Waldorf-inspired toys and playthings, handmade chocolates, and more! The joyous mood, wholesome children's activities, one-of-a-kind crafts, and beauty are the perfect antidote to the pervasive commercialism that can surround us during the holiday season. Come to our annual Holiday Fair & Craft Bazaar and enjoy a magical experience for all ages.
