It’s time to celebrate the arts in Sandpoint! Pend Oreille Arts Council once again presents the annual Arts & Crafts Fair. Held over two days in downtown Sandpoint on 2nd Avenue and Main Street, attendees will enjoy everything from artist booths and food vendors, a child youth art arena and more!
Locals and visitors alike will have the opportunity to explore artist exhibits featuring ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, home goods, metal, paintings and drawings, photography, wood, and foods. You can view the entire list of this year's participating vendors online at ArtinSandpoint.org/arts-crafts-fair.
The Arts & Crafts Fair will run Saturday, August 14, from 9am to 5pm, and Sunday, August 15, 9am to 4pm. All proceeds go directly to support POAC’s programs in visual and performing arts and art education for the benefit of the Sandpoint community.
Another way to show your support to the Pend Oreille Arts Council and its mission for supporting excellence in the arts is by attending POAC’s annual Art Party. This promises to be a wonderful evening featuring a gourmet dinner catered by Ivano's Ristorante; cocktails, wine and beer; entertainment from Allegro Dance Studio and Suzuki String Academy; and a special selection of silent and live auction items. Attendees will also have the chance at a sneak peek of Pend Oreille Arts Council's 2021-2022 Performing Arts Series.
This fundraising event takes place Friday, August 27, starting at 5:30pm, and will be held at Sandpoint Organic Agricultural Center (10881 North Boyer Road). Tickets are priced $95 per person and can be purchased online at ArtinSandpoint.org/art-party. Don’t wait! Get your tickets today!
