Holiday Craft Fair

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

Our annual craft fair is scheduled for Saturday, November 23 from 9AM-2PM  at the New Durham Elementary School. This annual fair hosts a myriad of crafters, artisans, local organizations and more showcasing their wares and sharing their missions. While open to the general public, this fair does not accept registrations from vendors selling manufactured products. Only handmade items are to be sold.

Registration is only $25 per space with spaces set up primarily in the gymnasium (though overflow into the hallways is possible depending on registration numbers). Registrants are not required to submit a raffle item, however any items collected will be used for the upcoming Senior Celebration to be held in December. 

From stocking stuffers to lovely holiday gifts to items to decorate your home, there is something for everyone!

Additional features of this event include concessions as a fundraiser for a local organization as well as distribution of Wish-Upon-A-Stars by the New Durham Food Pantry. Each star represents a New Durham resident in need from child to Senior - we hope you'll consider choosing a star to "gift with goodwill" this holiday season!

Plus, we'll have a (free) kids craft table, raffles & more!

Hope to see you there!
