Vendor Fair

Event Summary

The market will include up to 50 participants, artisans, and vendors, live music, and delicious food and craft drinks in a beautiful setting surrounded by shady oaks and cedars.  Fun, laid back, relaxing, and entertaining. This is our most popular market and we see a large and engaged crowd. Each year we have been adding more spaces, overflow parking, and seeing larger crowds. Both admission and parking are free. If you are an artisan, participant, or vendor with something fun, interesting, and valuable to offer, we encourage you to apply.
