City Hosts Colorful Holiday Craft Fair

4-2

The City of Everett recently hosted the first annual Holiday Craft Fair at the Everett Recreation Center.

In continuing the City’s celebration of the holiday season, attendees were able to browse and shop a selection of homemade jewelry, baked goods, knick-knacks, ornaments, clothes, personalized crafts and more. Those who attended were able to directly support local artists and vendors with the purchase of each item.

The City provided another opportunity to shop local this holiday season by bringing local artists and vendors together for one event. The Holiday Craft Fair is also in addition to Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s announcement earlier this holiday season to suspend parking meter fees for a period from Thursday, Dec. 1 to Tuesday, Jan. 3. This effort is to encourage residents and visitors to consider choosing to shop local businesses during the holiday season.

“It’s important to support local small businesses, especially during the holiday season,” said Mayor DeMaria. “This craft fair was a great opportunity for the community to do so.”
