More than two dozen artists will sell original arts and crafts including: clothing, sewn and knitted items, accessories, jewelry, paintings, prints and photos, ceramics, bath products, wood art, Christmas trees and rock art.
The Arcata Playhouse and La Patria Solis will serve delicious food and drinks all day. The usual outdoor Art Market has moved indoors to Redwood Raks to stay cozy, warm and dry. Redwood Raks is off the courtyard in the historic Creamery building at 9th and L Streets in Arcata. The winter schedule of the Arcata Farmer’s Market begins in November; so come get your free community music, food and fun event fix at the Holiday Art Market.
Musical entertainment will be headlined by four of our local treasures: guitarist Angel Fargas, the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir Ensemble, Celtic harpist Kathe Lyth and the Blue Dragon Steel Drum Band. Angel Fargas, who has studied, taught and played guitar internationally, will be playing classical and Latin guitar. The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir has been uplifting hearts for 22 years and will sing a selection of their own brand of Christmas music. Kathe Lyth, playing the beautiful Celtic harp, is also the founding director of the award winning and world traveling Redwood Children’s Chorus. Percussionist extraordinaire Jesse Jonathon heads up the Blue Dragon Steel Drum Band, composed of a fantastic group of local students.
