Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair

October 27, 9am-3pm

The annual holiday fair will be held outdoors on the grounds of the UU Fellowship located on the busy Atlanta Highway near Ann Street. Artists, crafters and authors are invited to rent spaces for the day-long event. This is an excellent opportunity to capitalize on the market of early holiday shoppers and present your work to the public; there will be no buy/sell. In the event of rain, the fair will be moved indoors.
