NH Marathon Arts and Crafts Fair

BRISTOL — Once again, the Saturday of the New Hampshire Marathon -- this year, October 5 -- offers two kinds of events in Bristol, NH: running, and shopping at the NH Marathon Arts and Crafts Fair.
Held for over 15 years, the NH Marathon Arts and Crafts Fair has filled the gymnasium in Newfound Memorial Middle School with booths displaying a wide assortment of reasonably priced, high quality products. From soy candles to pottery, wood products to hand cranked socks, jewelry, knitted and baby items, and decorative scarves to maple products, fishing flies, and photography, there's something for everyone. This year there are over thirty booths.
Visitors to the NH Marathon Arts and Crafts Fair will see lots of familiar faces. More than half of the artisans and crafters hail from the local area. Many of the participants are returnees from previous years, and a few local newcomers will join the mix.
Funds from booth rentals are donated to help support three local charities: the Circle Program, the Mayhew Program, and Tapply-Thompson Community Center, all of which serve local communities.
The fair begins at 9 a.m. just after the start of the marathon and the 10k run, and it ends at 3 p.m. Parking is available behind Newfound Memorial Middle School, and admission to the event is free of charge.
