    The Craft Fair is our largest fundraiser and accounts for the majority of the funds provided to organizations in Holliston through our grant program. It is also a lot of fun and something people look forward to attending every year! This year is our 37th Fair!

    We have been a busy committee this summer reviewing the submissions we have received so far and sending out our responses back. It was a long but fun initial meeting– we have more applicants to review as we meet again in early September and then we will roll jurying as we move into the fall.

    This year’s Craft Fair will be held on Sunday, November 23 from 9 am- 4 pm at the Holliston High School. If you see any great handmade crafts at shows or fairs this summer, please let them know about our terrific fair – the 2014 contract and application are on the HNC website so it is easy to complete these and mail in to apply!

    We are always looking for volunteers so please let us know if you are interested and what you’d like to be involved in! The subcommittees are a great way to get involved and can be a lot of fun. There are a variety of opportunities available! Most of our subcommittee lead positions are filled but we can always use help and new ideas to improve the fair and the more the merrier!

    Please be sure to stop by the Activities Fair/Cheese Tasting 2014 at the Holliston Historical Society Barn on September 11 from 7-9 pm to volunteer for your 2-hour shift at the Fair! We are successful because of our great crafters and great volunteers and the crafters noted in surveys this past year that our volunteers were truly awesome and one big reason why they keep coming back year-after-year! If you can’t make it, we’ll soon have the link up on the website to sign-up for a shift there!

    Please reach out to any one of the Ways and Means Committee members if you have an interest or if you want to volunteer to help out in any way. We’d love to hear from you!!
