Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair This Weekend

As the holiday shopping season is about to begin, Tucson Parks and Recreation is offering an alternative to the busy stores. The annual Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair will be held this Saturday and Sunday at Reid Park, 22nd Street and Country Club Road. The free event will be west of the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.

More than 100 vendors will be on hand from all over the Southwest, ranging from artists, crafters, photographers, painters, potters, jewelers and more. The Thanksgiving weekend fair has become a tradition for many holiday shoppers for more than 20 years.

If you're looking for something cozy, this is the place for quilts, knit scarves, and fragrant handcrafted soaps and lotions.

Food and refreshments from local vendors will be available for purchase.
