November 14, 2013 (Descanso) – Looking for a place to do some early holiday shopping?  Descanso is hosting an Arts and Crafts Fair, where you can enjoy free refreshments, listen to some wonderful live music, and purchase hand-crafted items, all while taking in the fresh mountain air along with a little backcountry hospitality.

The 5th Annual Descanso Arts and Crafts Fair hosts a wide variety of award-winning local artists and craftspeople offering everything you need to tackle that holiday shopping list or perhaps just a treat for yourself.  A few of the goods available include: the Artwork of Phoebe Burnham; bronze sculpture; custom jewelry; leatherwork; home-made specialty food items; home, ranch and garden decor; carved wood pieces and decorative gourds and so much more.  Music will be provided by Paul Nichols and there will be a drawing benefiting the historic Descanso Town Hall where you just might win something from one of the talented artists in attendance.

To join in the fun, take the Hwy 79/Descanso exit off the 8 and follow the signs.  Saturday, November 23rd from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at the Descanso Town Hall, 24536 Viejas Grade Rd, Descanso, CA.  91916.  For information, call Lisa 619-445-6812.  On the day of the event, call the Town Hall at 619-445-9505.
