On the Olympic Peninsula, the arrival of the holidays also marks the arrival of the Holiday Gift & Food Fair. For the past several decades, this sprawling extravaganza has unpacked right around Thanksgiving with two primary goals: help shoppers cross off chunks of their lists while showcasing the products and talents of local exhibitors.
Year after year, the fair handpicks every potential exhibitor through a juried process to guarantee a high-quality and professional show. Handcrafted items and food booths dominate the fair's selection on an annual basis, with vendors doling out everything from woodwork, paintings, and pottery to handmade jewelry, birdcages, and of course, Christmas-themed items.
