The 35th annual Country Christmas Faire is happening at the beautiful Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley on November 29, 30 and December 1.
Four large exhibit buildings will be filled with unique handcrafted gifts, crafts and holiday décor, giving Fairgoers a chance to begin their holiday shopping and purchase quality handmade items, including ceramics, jewelry, wooden crafts, soaps and lotions, ornaments, stained glass, candles, beadwork, fiber arts, and thousands of other unique gifts created by talented artisans.
Visitors to the Faire will enjoy musical entertainment, a gingerbread house and holiday ornament display, a community bonfire, and wagon rides around the Fairgrounds. There will also be delicious food and beverages available.
Santa will be available in the Cowbell Barn from 11 am – 4 pm on Friday and Saturday and from 11 am – 3 pm on Sunday. Bring your camera to capture that special photo. Babysitting is offered by Girl Scouts of the Northern Mines Service Unit, so parents can drop off their children while they enjoy holiday shopping.
