Did you draw the hard-to-buy-for sibling this year? Maybe your partner has everything they need, and you want to get them something unique. Or, perhaps you prefer hand-crafted items over mass-produced things?
Regardless of your reason, you will find what you need at the Cheyenne Mountain High School Holiday Craft Fair this Saturday.
This event is in its ninth year, and the coordinators have it down to a fine science. It is so popular that vendor space sells out quickly every year.
There is free admission and plenty of free parking. It is typically a well-attended event, so if you find yourself in the far reaches of the parking lot, there is a free shuttle that will drive you to and from the front door.
Once inside, you will be greeted by wonderful sights and smells of the season. It is a festive event that is sure to get you into the holiday spirit.
With over 140 vendors, there is something for everyone here. There will be pottery, jewelry, soap, scarves, books, cookies, and wood crafts to name a few. The selection is huge, and everything is handmade. For a complete list of the 2021 vendors, go here.
If you get hungry while shopping, there is a "Woodland Cafe" (concession stand) serving breakfast and lunch items. There will also be a bake sale with wonderful holiday treats including full-size desserts, as well as single-serving options. You can munch on some tasty treats while browsing.
Plan to stay all day because every 15 minutes, a shopper will receive $10 in holiday bucks to use at one of the vendors. It might be your lucky day!
This fair is a stroller and wheelchair-friendly event with single-level shopping and wide aisles. There will be plenty of student elves to help carry purchases to the car when your shopping is done.
It is a well-organized event and worth the visit. Mark your calendar - you will not be disappointed!
