Staff Report

Hundreds of people shopped the Los Alamos Arts Council’s Holiday Arts and Craft Fair Saturday at Crossroads Bible Church.

The annual Holiday Fair is held indoors the Saturday before Thanksgiving and features more than 100 New Mexican artists whose work is juried for quality and sales potential.

Residents and visitors are given the opportunity to do all of their holiday shopping at this event, plus, the event benefits an organization that brings to town numerous events throughout the year, such as Brown Bag Concerts, Kite Festival, Pumpkin Glow and Coffeehouse.

The Los Alamos Arts Council has presented arts and crafts fairs in Los Alamos since 1967.
