Its not a day on the farm, its The Big One.

Hundreds of craft makers and artisans have come together inside the North Dakota State Fair Expo Center for the largest Big One ever.

Stacy Frank and his wife Lisa took over the event that has run for nearly thirty years.

Frank says the event draws not only consumers, but also vendors because of the products and the community.

(Stacy Frank, Owner of The Big One) "Minot supports it and the surrounding community supports it. And that's a good thing. The second thing is we have a niche in our market as promoters, we have everything that's hand made here, some element of it being hand made. So that draws vendors to this type of show. So that's one aspect of our show that is so popular. And that's what the consumers look for too. They're looking for that neat, unique item."

The big one will run all weekend at the Expo Center and admission is three dollars.
