2014 Appalachian Christmas Artisan Fair

Nov 22, 2014 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

UPIKE Gymnasium (downtown Pikeville near the intersection of Bank and Elm Streets)
Sustainable Pike County announces its 2nd Annual Appalachian Christmas Craft Fair for Saturday, November 22, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the University of Pikeville Gymnasium in downtown Pikeville. The event will feature only locally craftspeople and artists. The fair is designed to provide a venue for local artisans to sell their products. Donations of $1.00 at the door will gladly be taken to support Sustainable Pike County's continuing mission of creating opportunities for local businesses that showcase the enormous talent of local vendors.

This year’s event has moved to a larger location to accommodate more vendors and attendees. The inaugural fair held in 2013 was held at the Pike County Extension Office and featured over 30 vendors, with over 500 individuals attending the event.

“We are excited for this year’s event, that promises to be bigger and better than last year’s event. As soon as the event ended last year, we had vendors and attendees asking about next year’s event. Our vendors were pleased with the event and the response from customers, so with demand comes growth, and we hope that this year’s event will again help local people and the local economy. This year’s event proves the importance of supporting the local economy. We have dozens of vendors that we be featured and that means that all those dollars stay in our local economy. The crafts are hand-made and are not manufactured items from outside the area. This is truly a unique that we hope strengthens are local economy,” said Fair Coordinator, Kelly Scott.

The variety of crafts and other products to be featured at the event will highlight the creativity of local artisans and will also provide a sampling of baked goods and local holiday entertainment from local bands and artists, and will include pictures with Santa Claus.

For vendors wanting to participate, please contact Kelly Scott at (606) 432-8966 or visit the Eventbrite Registration page at or visit the Sustainable Pike County Facebook page for the link to register.
