Country Christmas Faire

Four large exhibit buildings are filled with thousands of handcrafted items and gifts, giving shoppers a chance to start their holiday shopping and purchase unique quality handmade items created by more than 100 talented artisans.

Visitors to the Country Christmas Faire can enjoy strolling musical entertainment, a gingerbread house exhibit, a community bonfire, and wagon rides around the Fairgrounds. There is also delicious food and beverages, and the Fairgrounds Foundation will be serving holiday cocktails. 

Santa is available for visitors each day, free babysitting is offered by Girl Scouts of the Northern Mines Service Unit, and Errand Elves from Clear Creek School will be at Main Street Center and available to assist shoppers throughout the event. 

As a reminder, pets are not allowed on the grounds during the Country Christmas Faire, except for those canines assisting a disabled Country Christmas Faire visitor or participant.
