Cayuga County is set to celebrate the festive season with the 48th annual Holiday Craft Fair at Cayuga Community College this weekend. The event, known for showcasing a wide array of crafts and products, will feature over 130 vendors from Central New York and beyond, including more than thirty-six new participants this year. The fair, organized by the Cayuga Community College Foundation, represents the largest edition in recent years, according to the Foundation’s Executive Director, Guy Cosentino.
Scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the fair will take place at the college campus located at 197 Franklin St., Auburn. Cosentino expressed his enthusiasm about continuing this long-standing community tradition. The event will not only offer a variety of crafts and goods but also feature entertainment and activities for all ages. The college’s Musical Theatre Ensemble is set to perform from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on Saturday, and Perform 4 Purpose will take the stage during the same hours on Sunday.
In addition to the craft fair and musical performances, the college’s nursing program will offer free blood pressure testing. The telecom department will add to the holiday spirit by playing Christmas music. For younger visitors, there will be a children’s craft table for making holiday decorations and gifts, supervised by an alum of the college’s art program. Local Boy Scouts will also be present, selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts, coffee, and water. Additionally, food trucks, including Pizzeria Azzurri, Tony’s Lemonade, and Phat Kat Foods, owned by CCC student Mariah Quigley, will offer various culinary delights. The fair promises to be a festive and enjoyable event for the community, with free admission for all attendees. More details are available on the college’s website at cayuga-cc.edu/craftfair.
