7th Annual Native Foods and Craft Fair this weekend!!

Pueblo Grande Museum Staff are working hard to get ready for our 7th Annual Native Foods and Craft Fair on Saturday, October 16, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The fair will feature Native foods and crafts from various local farmers and artists including American Indian communities such as the Salt River Pima Maricopa and the Gila River Communities.

In addition to fresh produce from local growers, we will have Native American demonstrators and vendors displaying their art. Some of the featured artists will have gourd crafts, leather work, herbal products, and much more! This Fair will also feature Cooking demonstrations by Classic Cooking Academy.

The Native Foods and Craft Fair will also be a treat for kids with a children’s craft area that focuses on agriculturally related and fall themed crafts. Children will be able to pick a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and decorate it for the upcoming holiday. For those who enjoy a little competition, we will have a watermelon eating contest for both children and adults! There will also be Frybread taco lunch available for purchase between 10 am and 2 pm.

This event is a great way to get out and enjoy the wonderful fall Arizona weather and pick up a few new things or produce from local growers! See you there!
