POAC Arts & Crafts Fair

When: Sat., Aug. 12 and Sun., Aug. 13 2017

If getting out of the big city heat is on your weekend to-do list, consider the short drive north to scenic Sandpoint, which also offers plenty to see and do this weekend, including the 45th annual Pend Oreille Arts Council’s arts and crafts fair lining the lawn of City Beach. With dozens of fine artists showing and selling their wares in all artistic media, the festival also features all the other usual suspects: food vendors, live music and entertainment and kids’ activities. For just $5, a youth art area offers a variety of hands-on projects for kids age 12 and under to get messy with. Remember to leave your pets at home — they’re not allowed on City Beach; it’s also just too hot. Head to the arts council’s website for a complete list of participating artists online at this summer arts highlight.

Sat, Aug. 12 and Sun, Aug. 13 from 9 am-4 pm • Free admission • Sandpoint City Beach • 58 Bridge St. • artsinsandpoint.org
