LAC Holiday Fair Set for Nov. 16 & 17
By Sue Jewell, Leadville Arts Coalition
If you’re like most, efforts turn to the holiday shopping list this time of year. So, mark the calendar for an upcoming tradition that brings together all of the talented artists, craftspeople and vendors in Leadville Today. You’re sure to start crossing things off that list, all the while by supporting Leadville’s most talented.
Select unique handmade gifts, crafts, holiday decor and enjoy homemade holiday cheer, when you visit the Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair on Friday & Saturday, Nov. 16- 17, at Colorado Mountain College in the Climax Molybdenum Leadership Building, 901 Hwy 24, Leadville.
The Leadville Arts Coalition invites folks from Leadville and beyond to this unique shopping opportunity. Get started with the holiday fun on Friday from 3-8 PM, and continue the festivities on Saturday from 10 a.m. -4 p.m. Visit the Fair to see a wonderful assortment of merchandise, that local/regional artists and crafters have created. This year’s fair will showcase handcrafted arts, crafts, holiday decor, specialty food items, jewelry and clothing for everyone’s holiday gift lists.
The Leadville Arts Coalition encourages shoppers to support artists and crafters by shopping locally at this fair. For over twenty-five years the Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair has served as the main fund-raiser for LAC, a non-profit group that promotes the arts, public art installations, and art education in Leadville/Lake County.
During 2018, LAC donated $500 to Lake County High School to help fund their musical production: “Annie.” Once again LAC helped with the 321 Fridays – the summer Meet the Artist series hosted by Harperrose Studios: Gallery and Goods, in Leadville. LAC also donated $500 towards the Tabor Opera House Preservation Foundation, as part of their “Save the Tabor” campaign. Just recently LAC purchased a seat at The Old Church, to help with the Lake County Civic Center Association’s project to revitalize the church into a center for the arts and humanities.
