19th Annual Holiday Craft Market on December 8, 9

This is a press release from the City of Arcata:

Arcata, CA – The City of Arcata Recreation Division is excited to be hosting its upcoming Holiday Craft Market for its nineteenth year.

The Holiday Craft Market is a two-day event where artists, crafters and musicians come together to share their talents with the community to help raise funds for Arcata Recreation Division’s Youth Development Scholarship Fund, which supports youth in our community by subsidizing fees for recreation programs.

In 2017, the Youth Development Scholarship Fund awarded 424 individual scholarships to local youth totaling over $13,200, with the Holiday Craft Market fundraiser contributing over $6,300 to the scholarship fund.

On Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9, community members are invited to come out and shop for unique handcrafted gifts from over 50 local artisans, while enjoying live music and warm, nutritious bites.

Plus, on Saturday, December 8, children ages 4 to 10 are invited to register for Holiday Castles and Graham Cracker Houses workshops taking place in the Arcata Community Center’s Arts and Crafts Room. The workshops take place in conjunction with the Holiday Craft Market, so kids can enjoy the workshop while their adults shop the market.

This fun and festive workshop for children ages 4 to 6 will take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and for children ages 7 to 10 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The cost for the workshop is $15 for Arcata residents and $21 for non-residents.

The 2018 Holiday Craft Market will take place on Saturday, December 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Arcata Community Center, located at 321 Dr. Martin
