Mendocino Art Center's 56th Annual Thanksgiving Arts and Crafts Fair

In what has become a north coast tradition, thirty-five juried artists and craftspeople from throughout Northern California exhibit original handmade artwork. The Mendocino Art Center’s galleries and class studios are transformed into a two-day holiday marketplace, providing residents and visitors a pleasant alternative to hectic, stressful mall shopping while supporting local and regional artists. Featured will be a wide array of unique, high quality artwork and gift items, including handcrafted jewelry, original paintings, functional and decorative ceramics, fiber art and clothing, handcrafted herbal body care products, holiday ornaments, fresh holiday wreaths and more.

Also savor a delicious assortment of festive food items.
