Arts & Crafts Fair

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

45th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair 2017: August 12-13

Applications now available for Artist Vendors!


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 5,000 people. The Arts & Crafts Fair takes place during the day, on the lawn at City Beach 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.
