The 14th annual Lake Almanor Memorial Weekend Craft Fair will take place this Saturday and Sunday, May 28 – 29, in the Chester Park. The Chester Park is located one block off Main Street along the banks of the North Fork of the Feather River.
This will be the second year the Rotary Club of Chester has sponsored this popular crafters’ event.
Rotarian and event chairwoman Cheri McIntire has announced there will be a few changes going into this year’s show, specifically the hours of operation.
The craft fair will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
The 2011 craft fair will feature 50 booths of juried, handcrafted items. Guests touring the booths can expect to find pottery, woodworking items, specialty foods, jewelry, rugs, scented soaps, quilts, photography and many forms of fine art.
McIntire said Rotary is striving to recruit new and different types of items for each year’s fairs. She said the 2011 show would feature three first-time vendors as well as the returning favorites.
The Rotary Club of Chester is confident that this year’s show will be the best ever, not only for the vendors but for craft fair enthusiasts as well.
Proceeds from events benefit the club’s local community service projects: Chester Elementary School sixth-grade Plumas to the Pacific outdoor education field trip, Chester High School limnology, annual Rotary at Work Day’s Senior Offered Services, the annual Major Appliance Clean-up (MAC), ongoing Reading in Kindergarten, Read Across America book donations and Rotary Youth Exchange.
