FREE ADMISSION to the public.
ABout the fair
Get your holiday shopping done while supporting local artists in your community! We have about 70 vendors and over 300-400 people visit the fair each year. From jewelry, to knitted goods, custom cups, and more!
There are 70 available tables for purchase. General table registration opens in July. Visit www.concordreg.org and search for "craft fair". For now, we are unable to have vendors sell any food products until the health department allows cottage industry vendors to sell to public.
The holidays can be an isolating and lonely time for some. The Be a Santa to a Senior, or BASTAS, program is an annual service program sponsored by Home Instead and championed by the Commission on Aging. The program involves several partners and individual volunteers who come together through November and December to collect names and gift wishes from underprivileged seniors who may not have friends, family, or financial means to celebrate the holidays. The goal is to ensure that every senior in need gets at least one beautifully wrapped holiday gift.
There are several ways for community members to participate in the program:
SHOP FOR A SENIOR
You can find a BASTAS tree at the following locations:
WRITE A LETTER OR A CARD
We also welcome hand written generic cards and letters of encouragement or fun (no politics or religion please). Seniors really enjoy cards from kids.
