Christmas Fair returns to Sandpoint
FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS NOW, the Bonner County Fairgrounds has hosted the annual Christmas Fair, offering the community an incredible opportunity to shop unique handmade items while having a little holiday fun. Mark your calendars to attend the 2019 event, which takes place from 9am to 4pm Saturday, November 16, and 10am to 3pm Sunday, November 17.
With nearly 100 vendors, shoppers will be delighted as they shop for handmade signs and art, home décor, hats and ornaments, children’s wooden toys and dolls, books, puzzles and stuffed animals, hand-painted glass and refurbished items, unique custom jewelry and so much more! In addition, vendors will be on-site providing delicious foods like mini donuts, sandwiches, kettle corn and coffee.
“It is such a fun event to see the community celebrate the incredible talent by our local artisans and creative vendors,” says Shelli Cowell, Bonner County Fair office manager. “My favorite part is seeing these local vendors succeed and sell their handcrafted wares, and for the connection to happen with customers finding that super special, unique gift that they won't find anywhere else!”
Santa Claus will be making an appearance from noon to 2pm both days, so make sure the kids come prepared with their Christmas lists for St. Nick! In addition, the “Santa’s Workshop” kids’ craft area will be open throughout the two-day fair and is free for all children to enjoy.
This year marks the 2nd Annual Gingerbread House Competition to benefit the Bonner Community Food Bank. All participants are required to bring a canned food item. For those looking to take part in the fun, additional details can be found online at the Bonner County Fair website.
Last year, more than 3,000 people attended the Christmas Fair, and according to Shelli, they’re expecting even more this year!
“Put on a pair of cozy winter boots, enjoy a warm latte from our coffee vendor, and savor the festive fun of shopping at this year's Christmas Fair!” smiles Shelli.
