My First Craft Fair!

So, one of my goals for this year was to be in a craft fair and I am about to achieve that goal this week!

I was accepted to be a vendor at the Denver Handmade Alliance‘s Pop-Up Booth at the first ever Denver County Fair! Yup, first ever! Crazy, huh?

Denver was going to have a county fair back in the day, but then The Civil War broke out. The land that Denver put aside for the fair then became City Park and they just never got around to having a fair.

Growing up in Vermont I have great memories of going to fairs and I haven’t been to one in a long time. Although I’m pretty sure that nothing can live up to the spectacularness that is the Tunbridge World’s Fair. It’s still going to be pretty fun. The Denver County Fair is going to have all sorts of cool games, rides and attractions. Some of the highlights (according to me) will be:

A freak show

Cats: Mr. Bigglesworth Look-a-Like

Best “County Fair” Drag Queen

Speed Crochet

and a Cheesburger King and Queen

I can’t wait!

Definitely come check out the fair and the DHA booth in the Craft Pavilion. I’ll be working at the DHA booth on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-1pm, so please come by and say hi. Hope to see you there!
