Arts & Crafts Fair

Pend Oreille Arts Council’s Annual Arts & Crafts Fair in Downtown Sandpoint, Idaho

46th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair 2018: August 11th & 12th


BIG NEWS! After 45 years at City Beach, the Arts & Crafts Fair is moving to downtown Sandpoint in 2018.

This two-day event occurs during one of the busiest weekends of the year in Sandpoint, concurrent with the Festival at Sandpoint, an evening concert series. Last year’s fair saw an attendance of over 3000 visitors. The Arts & Crafts Fair takes place during the day, on 2nd & Main in downtown Sandpoint. Elements of the
fair include artist booths, food vendors, live
entertainment, and a youth art arena. Artwork
exhibited includes sculpture, AC Fair Booth shotceramics, metal, fiber, photography, paintings, mixed media, wood, crafts, and more. All proceeds go directly to support POAC’s programs in visual and performing arts and art education for the benefit of our community.

We appreciate your participation and support as we look forward to this popular event each year.
