Fayetteville hosts largest craft fair this side of the state

November 8, 2013 by  

Eastern North Carolina’s biggest show of its kind, the Holly Day Fair, is taking place in Fayetteville at the Crown Center before coming to a close tomorrow. No doubt a variety of printing services is being used to announce this fair to the community and those in the surrounding area.

The Holly Day Fair is sponsored by the Fayetteville Junior League, which accepts vendors from across the United States. The competition for a spot in the fair is fierce and those who want to display their goods apply months in advance.

According to Anna Haley, chairperson of the 2013 event, each vendor is hand-selected so that the fair will have unique items that one would not likely find in area stores. Vendors from all across the United States are chosen so that they can offer a taste of their part of the country.

Typically, there are 200 vendors at the fair and an average of 21,000 attendees over the three-day period. The items on display are an extensive selection of handcrafted and manufactured products and include stylish jewelry, holiday decorations, household accents, clothes, specialty food items, children’s toys.

The Junior League of Fayetteville is an organization of women with educational and charitable purposes, and is designed to improve the community through the actions and leadership of its volunteers. It also serves to develop the potential of women of all races, religions, and national origins. More information can be found on its website.
