Small Business Saturday &
42nd Annual Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair



We will again be hosting our annual craft fair at the Fort Kent Knights of Columbus Hall (372 Frenchville Road) and the Lonesome Pine Ski Slopes (2 Forest Avenue)

With many, many crafters – mostly consisting of those you’ve loved to shop from in previous years, this year promises to be like no other. Get all your holiday shopping done in one community – Join us again this year for our annual holiday craft fair!

Food also provided by the Knights of Columbus.

Please note:
Although not mandatory, mask-wearing and social distancing in the KC Hall and in all stores are highly recommended and strongly encouraged.

This season, it’s more important than ever to support the local businesses we love. After the success of last year’s Small Business Saturday Craft Vendor Event, some owners of Fort Kent small businesses have graciously agreed to host crafters in their stores as part of their own Small Business Saturday promotions again this year. Crafters and their locations are listed on the map. Click the link below to view the map.

Small Business Saturday is an annual holiday shopping tradition started by American Express in 2010 to support the Shop Small Movement. In an effort to support their local communities, organizations across the country sign up to serve as Neighborhood Champions, bringing their communities together with events on Small Business Saturday (the Saturday after Thanksgiving) and throughout the year.

The Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a part of this campaign.

According to an AMEX-commissioned study 2018 Small Business Economic Impact Study, every time you purchase a hand-made good from a local artist, or shop at a local small business, “an average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at small businesses in the U.S. stays in the local community…. Further, every dollar spent at small businesses creates an additional 50 cents in local business activity as a result of employee spending and businesses purchasing local goods and services…”
