Nevada City Winter Craft Fair

 

The fun and festive Nevada City Winter Craft Fair returns just in time for the holiday season to the Miners Foundry Cultural Center, Sunday, December 13, 2015, 10am-6pm, in downtown Nevada City.  Tickets are $3, children 12 and under are admitted free of charge.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.

The independent, juried craft fair showcases over sixty of the local region’s top Etsy vendors, artisans, designers, do-it-yourself crafters, and features their unique, handmade, original and repurposed art, clothing, accessories, jewelry, and housewares. Attendees can also expect to find letterpress, paper and stationary items as well as children’s things, toys, ceramics, bath products, and many more unique holiday gifts.

“The Nevada City Craft Fair features the best of the best local talent in indie design and craft. You will find beautiful and functional items, handmade with excellent craftsmanship from up and coming artists and crafters,” explains the festival’s new producer Naomi Cabral. “There is a level of modernity and fine artistry to the designs that the indie craft festival movement is known for through out the country. The Nevada City Craft Fair is no different in its depth. In fact, with its unique small mountain town setting, the originality and sustainability of the crafts you will find is even more prevalent.”

The first Nevada City Craft Festival was produced the summer of 2010 by a group of local young crafters, artists and social do-gooders who were inspired by the independent entrepreneurship and creative talents
in their community as well as the success of the Renegade Craft Fairs across the US and Europe. The bi-annual event continues to grow and to date has introduced over 9,000 attendees to more than 600 local and regional artists, designers and crafters.

The Nevada City Craft Fair is more than a holiday shopping bazaar, it is a celebration of local hardworking artists and the American craft movement. The artists showing their works are creating beautiful, inspiring, useful products; pioneering new industries all the while improving our local community.
