2017 North Country Fair Sept 16 & 17 at Arcata Plaza in Arcata, CA. Booth #100

A Humboldt County tradition since 1974.

This year’s North Country Fair has been declared a A Celebration of Sanctuary For All. The two-day event, now in its 44th year, will feature even more local crafts and foods, plus its usual abundance of music and entertainment, but with a message for the present times.

The North Country Fair, like many of the town’s oldest institutions and businesses, was founded by people who came here seeking sanctuary, and by those local folks willing to provide it. A Proclamation to be issued by the City Council recalls that “the City of Arcata and The Same Old People, sponsors of the North Country Fair, have worked to foster a cultural and political refuge that has provided sanctuary for threatened humans as well as flora and fauna.”
