Capital A’fair Draws Big Crowds


Thousands filled the capitol grounds to enjoy the Capital A’fair.

With more than 130 art and craft vendors, the fair had a little something for everyone.

Sidewalks bustling and popcorn popping there’s more than one thing that will make visitors take a second look.

“We make kind of a day of it we come here and see the unique artisans and the jewelry making,” Thea Gilbertson, Capital A’fair says.

More than 160 food vendors and artisans set up shop

Coming from all across the state and the country to sell their goods.

“[It’s special ] to have something that was handmade something unique because every piece is individual,” Anita Hellman, Cherishables Jewelry says.

But not all artists bring something with them.

Some are leaving their mark right where you step.

“A fun thing to get out in the environment with other people and they can watch you do your chalk art,” Cherise Pfaff, chalk artist says.

Pfaff drew quite a crowd as she began drawing the lines that would take shape before their eyes.

Over the 10 hours, it takes to make her drawings she says she’s often asked one question.

“Are you sad when it rains cause it rains and washed it away,” Pfaff says

Whether an artist is leaving a piece behind or a visitor finds something special to take home one visitor says the fair is well worth the trip.

“It’s just a fun day of art and artisans and different things that you don’t normally see,” Gilbertson says.

And that she says, is what keeps her coming back year after year.

If you missed the opening day, There’s still time to take a peek. Capital A’fair will be running through tomorrow afternoon.
