Just in time for the Christmas gift-giving season, the Bonifas held its annual Holiday Arts Fair. Artists sold unique art and handcrafted creations at the Bonifas Arts Center at this fun, festive event.
The Holiday Arts Fair was held on Sat., Nov. 4 from 10 am to 4 p.m. The fair also featured a bake sale supported by Bonifas volunteers, and a visit by Santa Claus.
According to Bonifas Events Planner Amanda Krok, this popular Holiday Arts Fair, which was in its twelfth year, will also featured a Young Artists Market, with area youth selling their handmade designs and artwork, along with a kids’ craft table.
“This is the perfect time for those early holiday shoppers to purchase that one-of-kind gift for someone special,” Krok said, “and this year, the Holiday Arts Fair will feature several new vendors. Some of the unique gift items that vendors will be selling this year include hand-dyed scarves, glass flowers, handcrafted jewelry, handmade mittens, and new this year, ocarinas, which are Raku-fired clay wind instruments.”
In conjunction with the Holiday Arts Fair, there was also be a Holiday Art Walk with more than 13 businesses taking part. Special maps were given to people to guide them to visit and shop participating businesses. Shoppers returned their maps back to the Bonifas by 4 p.m. to be entered into a prize drawing.
The Holiday Arts Fair and Holiday Art Walk were both free for the public to attend.
