First up is Ephrata’s craft fair Saturday
Fair season officially begins in Ephrata when the 41st annual Ephrata Merchants Association Arts and Craft and Restaurant Fair comes to town from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 6.
More than 100 vendors and restaurants are booked to line downtown Ephrata, covering Main Street from Church to Lake streets and parts of State Street.
The Ephrata merchants have 21 new vendors among the 90-some returning to this year’s event. A wide variety of food, local artisans and small businesses will be offering everything from fresh baked sweets, homemade dog treats, hand-crafted chocolates, jewelry, candles, handbags, woodworking, photography, wreaths, glasswork, beaded work, Children’s Tepee’s, tatted, crochet items and the list goes on and on!
There will also be music at the Whistle Stop Plaza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. by Honey & the Bees.
The craft show is family-friendly and community oriented &tstr; a perfect opportunity to shop, not just the fair, but Ephrata’s downtown stores will be open and many will have sidewalk sale items. The fair also offers plenty of free parking in borough-owned lots.
For more information, visit ephratamerchants.com or Ephrata Merchants on Facebook and remember to support local businesses.
Proceeds from this event go directly to the extensive variety of free events sponsored by the Ephrata Merchants Association, including the festive lighting of downtown and arrival of Santa Claus, an Ephrata tradition for over 60 years.
