The Lithia Artisans Market invites you to join them for their 17th annual Christmas Faire at the Historic Ashland Armory, Thanksgiving Weekend. The Annual Christmas Faire features the artisans of Ashland’s Calle Guanajuato summer Market. The artisans will be showcasing quality, handmade gifts. Each booth will display original, locally made works of art, jewelry, pottery, clothing, wood-working, leather-work, candles, handmade soaps and much more. The artisans display and sell their wares throughout Thanksgiving Weekend, Friday 10-7, Saturday 10-6, and Sunday 11-4.
Festivities include live music, food by Mix Bakeshop, and a raffle for multiple gift certificates redeemable at the Christmas Faire or our seasonal outdoor market. Visitors can support the community by supporting local artisans.
NOVEMBER 24th – 26th
FRI 10-7, SAT 10-6, SUN 11-4
Historic Ashland Armory
Two blocks from downtown Ashland, corner of Oak and B Streets.
Held in conjuction with Ashland’s Festival of the Lights for the past 17 years, the event has grown into one of the best art and craft shows in the region during the holiday season. The Lithia Artisans Christmas Faire is a downtown Ashland tradition, and a great place to purchase quality gifts directly from the makers. All these folks make their living with their own hands… allowing artistic passion to blossom within their own hearts and minds and then manifest in creative expressions that can be worn, admired, or utilized in our day to day lives. “I love drinking morning coffee from one of my collection of handcrafted mugs.”
We are happy to announce three days of great music featuring local singer songwriters who all create their own original tunes. Everything you hear at the festival is original and authentic just like the art and craft you find in each of the 45 artisan booths arrayed in the great hall of the Historic Ashland Armory. Please refer to the music schedule at the bottom of this post.
We are equally excited this year to have Mix Bakeshop from downtown Ashland on board with a pop-up version of their downtown cafe at our event. Mix will be serving Stumptown Coffee, sweet and savory bakery items, soups, and much more. Everything under one roof… art, craft, live music, plus yummy food and beverages. Entry to the event is FREE to the public.
