The Fishers Freedom Festival will host the “Christmas in October Craft Fair” on Saturday, October 9th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Fishers High School, 13000 Promise Road in Fishers.  It will host over 150 arts and craft vendors with items for sale including handcrafted cards, ornaments, painted glass, jewelry, candles, doll clothes, pillowcase dresses, baby apparel, wooden toys, painted figures, and pottery.  There is something for everyone and this fundraiser typically attracts over 2,000 attendees.

All proceeds from the raffle will benefit the “Roy Holland Backpacks for Kids” program which has already provided 200 backpacks to students for the current school year.  Canned goods and new toys will be collected for the Hamilton County Good Samaritan Program.  If you bring a donation of canned goods, non-perishable items, or new toys you will receive one free raffle ticket. 

Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for seniors and students, and 12 years old and under are free.  The entrance into the craft show will be on the northwest and the southwest end of the high school.  Refreshments will be for sale.
 
Volunteers are needed on Friday, October 8 from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for marking vendor booth spaces and to help vendors move their items to their booth location.  Volunteers are also needed Saturday, October 9th between the hours of 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to help vendors move their items to their booth location, work the information table and the ticket booths, and clean up.   Sign up to volunteer by clicking here!

The success of this fundraiser is crucial for the Fishers Freedom Festival since it is a volunteer organization entirely funded by residential donations, sponsors, grants, booth fees, the business community and fundraisers.
