Arts Crafts and Family Fun Fair
At this time, the event is still proceeding as planned using proper social distancing protocols.
The Arts, Crafts and Family Fun Fair is an annual event held on the last Friday in June on the lawn of Historic City Hall, overlooking the east end of the Sault Locks and the St. Mary's River. This is also Engineers' Day - the one day each year that the public can walk across the locks. Recent Engineers' Day activities have brought over 10,000 people to the area.
High quality arts and crafts vendors, favorite foods, and kids' activities ranging from magicians with balloons to intriguing adventures, have been at the fair. Count on local maple syrup items, traditional and creative hand held meals, assorted roasted nuts, and familiar hot and cold dishes. Awesome artistic media at each fair includes photography, oil paintings, charcoal drawings, hand-woven and other fabric items, furniture, glass work, bead work, and jewelry.
The fair is an annual fundraiser for the E.U.P. Community Dispute Resolution Center, a non-profit that provides mediation services to the citizens of Chippewa, Luce and Mackinac Counties - giving them the opportunity to mediate disagreements, determine their own solutions and resolve differences using a process that is respectful and educational.
The fair runs from 10 AM - 5 PM and is located at 225 E. Portage Avenue, Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
