Holiday craft fair planned

A variety of artisans are expected to sell their hand-crafted wares at an annual holiday craft show planned for Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction.

The show is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 24 and 25 at the center, 159 Main St. in downtown Grand Junction. Admission will be $5 at the door. Children 12 and under will get in free. The show will include live demonstrations and offer food and beverages.

A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to United Way of Mesa County.

“What a great way to purchase unique and hand-crafted gifts and support local artisans,” said Maria Rainsdon, general manager of Two Rivers Convention Center, the Avalon Theater and Las Colonias Park for Pinnacle Venue Services. “We have some farmers market favorites that are showing off their fall and winter items that will make perfect holiday gifts.”

Vendors at the show will offer everything from bath and body gifts and crochet and knitted items to home decor and jewelry. In 2016, the show featured 65 vendors and attracted more than 1,500 people.

A list of vendors and some vendor spotlights will be available on the Two Rivers Convention Center Facebook page. Additional information also is available by calling 263-5700.
