Our hope is that we can go ahead with the event as planned but realize that social distancing protocols might change the traditional layout of this event and ultimately, the amount of vendors that can participate. We are also aware that there is the possibility of having to cancel this event completely.

Join us at the 39th Annual Village Venture Arts and Crafts Faire located in the Claremont Village on Saturday, October 24, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Rain or Shine. The Claremont Village is located in downtown Claremont off of Indian Hill Blvd. between First and Fourth Streets. This annual one day event draws over 16,000 visitors.

Presented by the Claremont Chamber of Commerce, the Faire includes over 450+ booths selling unique art, original crafts, and apparel.
