Looking for some amazing craft goods this holiday season, with funds supporting your local park Senior Clubs? Mayor Rick Blangiardi and DPR are proud to announce the return of the Mayor’s Craft & Country Fair to the Neal S. Blaisdell Center's Exhibition Hall on Saturday, Nov. 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Celebrating its 47th year, participants can get an early start on their holiday shopping with a wide variety of crafts, jams, jellies, baked goodies, hand-sewn accessories, pottery, fresh flowers and arrangements available for purchase. Most of the goods are crafted or sold by members of our vibrant DPR Senior Clubs, with proceeds from those sales going towards their kūpuna programming. There will also be a People’s Open Market on-site offering discounted produce, a cookies & party mix contest, and classic cars on display!
Bring a canned good to donate to the Hawai‘i Food Bank to support a happy holiday season for those in need. The Ala Moana Lions Club will additionally be collecting used eye glasses and hearing aids for repair and redistribution.
Entry into the fair is free and open to all ages. The regular, event parking rate of $8 per vehicle will be in effect for parking within the Blaisdell. We hope to see you there!
Mahalo to additional event sponsors for their continued support, including: the Honolulu Department of Enterprise Services, HMSA, Generations Magazine, and Cecile Sebastian, D.D.S.
