Thousands Expected to Flock To Fair

Posted: Updated:

The 30th annual Craftsmen Christmas Show kicked off in Kalispell on November 29, attracting more artists than ever.

After making it only halfway through the wait list, 73 booths now fill the Expo Center at the Kalispell fairgrounds, a new record.

All the artists are from Montana. Head of the Artists and Craftsmen of the Flathead Committee, Lois Wisher, says most are from the Valley.

Wisher estimates more than 3,500 people will visit the show before the weekend is over.

"I was actually at the mall last night and there were quite a few Canadian shoppers there and I stood up and said 'Hey, you wanna come to a great show?' And so I think we're going to see a lot of Canadian customers because we also advertised up there," said Wisher.

The fair will open again on Saturday, November 30 at 10:00 a.m.

On Sunday, December 1, you can shop from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
