Celebrate Culture! This year the Holiday Folk Fair International is highlighting the knowledge and skills involved in creating traditional objects that are as varied as the items themselves and range from delicate, detailed work such as weaving wheat straw or designing and sewing quilts to robust, rugged tasks like creating a sturdy basket or building a canoe and carving the paddles. Equally important is teaching the history of the art form and the customs associated with it. For 71 years, the Holiday Folk Fair International has been a keeper of our rich and diverse living heritage, safeguarding the past, honoring the present, and embracing the future.
