This is a past event.

50th Annual POAC Arts & Crafts Fair

Fifty years ago, a fledgling art organization based in Sandpoint, Idaho, called the Pend Oreille Arts Council created an event that has become a summer mainstay for visitors and locals alike. Originally held lakeside at City Beach, the annual Arts & Crafts Fair has since moved inland to downtown Sandpoint, which has been a boon for the event. Last year, more than 4,000 people strolled through tents to peruse paintings, pottery, photography, wearable art and more. With food vendors, a kids’ art area and plenty of amazing art to look at, the two-day event has something for everyone.

50th Annual POAC Arts & Crafts Fair • Sat, Aug. 13 from 9 am-5 pm and Sun, Aug. 14 from 9 am-4 pm • Free • All ages • Second Avenue and Main Street, Sandpoint • • 208-263-6139
