Fort Kent craft fair will return with new format

FORT KENT, Maine – The 40th annual Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce Arts and Crafts Fair will have a unique format this year to avoid the spread of COVID-19. 

More than 30 vendors will participate in the fair but rather than selling their homemade scarves, jams, doughnuts and jewelry products together in one location, they will set up shop at businesses throughout the greater Fort Kent area.

A map listing the businesses is available at the Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce website.

For example, at Pelletier’s Florist, Tyra’s Pooch Parlor will sell dog toys and treats, crafter Bern Theriault will sell mittens and crafter Lynn Appleton will sell hand-sewn goods. 

Down the road at Nadeau’s House of Flooring vendors will sell cupcakes, candy, ornaments, knit and crochet items.

“This season, it’s more important than ever to support the local businesses we love,” according to the website. 

The event will combine the craft fair with Small Business Saturday, and will take place from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 28.
