The 44th Annual Craft Fair will be presented by the Monson Arts Council on the weekend after Thanksgiving. The craft fair will be open to the public at no charge on Saturday November 25th from 9 am until 4 pm, and on Sunday November 26th from 11:30 am to 4 pm. More than sixty crafters will be showing their work in four buildings in downtown Monson within easy walking distance of each other. The buildings are Memorial Hall, the House of Art, and the Methodist and Universalist churches. This event has been a major draw for visitors from Monson and the surrounding towns.
One feature of the Craft Fair this year will be a carol sing on the Memorial Hall steps at 4 pm on Saturday. This is renewing an event which took place last year, when the traditional girl scout carol sing was opened up to all those who wished to join in. It coincides with the arrival of Santa Claus by fire engine.
