EAGLE — The seventh annual Winter Market & Holiday Fair returns to Eagle on Saturday showcasing locally, regionally and nationally hand-crafted items.
Santa will be there, and you should, too. More than 50 vendors have signed up so far, with more on the way.
“You’re buying from local people, so it’s great for them and it’s good for our local economy,” said Holli Snyder, general manager at AlwaysMountainTime, one of the event sponsors.
Admission is free, but bring some nonperishable food for the Eagle United Methodist Church’s food bank. They’re about out, and the holidays are upon us.
Castle Peak Veterinary Clinic is sponsoring pictures with Santa. It can be you, your family, your pets and your family or some combination we haven’t thought of.
They also have all kinds of children’s activities, so bring your kids — or someone else’s kids. They’ll be entertained while you shop.
Country Jam Passes
AlwaysMountainTime is giving away a pair of four-day Country Jam passes every hour. The fair starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. That’s eight hours, and eight pairs of four-day Country Jam passes. Vendors will be happy to send you home happy with all sorts of stuff, such as kitchen items, jewelry, bath and beauty products, home decor, knitted goods, ornaments, cards, photos, all kinds of candy and more.
“The Winter Market & Holiday Fair is a great opportunity to ring in the holiday season right here in the Vail Valley,” Snyder said.
