Nov. 25 & 26: Island Artisans 44th annual holiday market and fundraiser

The 44th Island Artisans Holiday Market Fundraiser will be held from 10 am to 5 pm Friday, November 25 and from 10 am to 4 pm Saturday, November 26, 2022 at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. Come see your favorite artisans and many new ones. Stacy will be serving wonderful food and the outside food area will be warmed by the Harbor Rental heaters.

Island Artisans is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1978 to raise scholarship funds for young artists within the community. The holiday market is the primary fundraiser for those scholarships. It is a juried show and sale by San Juan County artists, with each participating artist donating 10% of their sales to support the scholarship program. Additional donations are welcome. The event is sponsored by the following companies; King’s Market, Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching, Browne’s Home Center, Friday Harbor Freight, Harbor Rental & Saw shop, Vinny’s, Dockside Treasures and San Juan Coffee Roasting Co.

This is a great opportunity to support our students while supporting our local artists, designers, and craftspeople!  There were $12,000 worth of scholarships awarded in June to seven seniors from three different high schools.
