The Tucson Parks and Recreation department presents the annual Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair, Nov. 24-25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Gene C. Reid Park.
Come get a jump on your holiday shopping. This free event will draw in more than 140 vendors from all over the Southwest, ranging from artists, crafters, photographers, painters, potters, jewelers, and more. This Thanksgiving weekend fair has become a tradition for many holiday shoppers for more than 30 years.
Stroll through the park and visit artists with their colorful fused glass and mosaics, wind chimes, walking sticks, painted gourds, and teacup bird feeders. Discover an artist's original work in painting, photography, clay, wood, and fiber. If you are looking for something cozy, this is the place for quilts, knit scarves, and fragrant handmade soaps and lotions. Complement your holiday shopping list with the unique hand-painted sunglasses, handcrafted pens, stuffed toys and puppets, pet clothes, accessories, gourmet treats, and so much more. While enjoying the fair, be sure to stop for food and refreshments available for purchase from local vendors.
