Come watch the city center transformed by a myriad of tents housing the works of the most talented crafters and artisans. Pend Oreille Arts Council presents the 46th Annual Arts and Crafts Fair for the first time on downtown streets on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Over 90 vendors will be setting up their wares from Main Street east of Farmin Park to First Avenue and across Second Avenue from Cedar to Church. All products are handmade and all are extraordinary. This year’s juried Fair is certain to have the perfect item for your home and garden. And if it’s gifts you’re looking for you’ll have come to the right place. Yard art, glass art, metal art, pottery, jewelry and fine art and much more is to be found, all at reasonable prices.
But, that’s not all there is at the Fair! The Kaleidoscope Kids’ Booth will be set up again with face painting and artsy activities for children under 12. Live entertainment starts Saturday afternoon with the crowd favorite belly dancers and live music continues all day Sunday. Food vendors will be on hand waiting for hungry patrons.
Bear in mind the streets of the Fair will be closed to vehicle traffic starting at 5 p.m. on Friday afternoon and continuing until 8 p.m. on Sunday. Access to the City Lot will be on Church Street only. Additional parking is available at BGH Health Services Building at 423 N. Third.
