The Holiday Crafts Faire highlights over 35 local and regional artists, and features our traditional bucket raffle, fabulous food and beverages by a local gourmet chef, and baked goods provided by students from Salmon Creek School.
We welcome you to come and participate in the activities, take a stroll through town, and visit the local merchants and businesses. It is truly a holiday event that is not to be missed. Proceeds from this annual fundraiser are returned to the community through programs funded by the Occidental Community Council, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization supporting local needs.
