UWF Bazaar and Craft Fair
Our Holiday Bazaar, which is held on the first Saturday of November each year, is known throughout the region as the place to come for holiday crafts, gifts and goodies. With dozens of vendors, a silent auction, delicious food, and more, there’s something for everyone!
We need more crafters! If you know of someone who may be interested, please contact Vendor Chair Carol Engelbrecht at email@example.com or click the buttons for vendor guide and application.
