Hello Shoppers!

Our annual craft faire is open to the publc and admission is free!

Doors open at 10 a.m. and the event ends at 3 p.m.  We also offer a light lunch for purchase at the kitchen window with outdoor patio dining.  An ATM machine is located just inside the main hall.  Many of our crafters are Veterans, but all of the proceeds we receive from the rental of the craft spaces support The American Legion Post 419 Programs for Veterans, Children & Youth and our Community.  Please tell your friends and bring them to shop for their birthday and holiday gift-giving at this event.  Your craft purchases benefit your family and our Veterans.  Buy American from Local Crafters & Support Veterans!  We will update the Hall Layout as we get closer to the event date.

At the time of the event we will obey any masking requirements of the the state, local health, and county public health officials.
