A Holiday Artisans Fair, sponsored by the Bedford Cultural District and the Gallery Committee @ First Parish in Bedford, will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3 inside the historic meeting house on Bedford Common.
First Parish is fully accessible using its Elm Street Entrance. More than two dozen local artists, craftspeople (and an author) will exhibit and sell original work. People will also find local-made jewelry, crochet animals, stained glass, scarves, and mittens.
The Gallery Committee’s 10th annual retrospective remains on view during the fair.
Providing opportunities to support Bedford arts and artists is an important component of the Cultural District’s mission. For families planning to celebrate the start of the holiday season, the Town’s annual Tree Lighting ceremony will take place on Bedford Common at 5 p.m., followed by the arrival of a special visitor from the far north.
To round out the afternoon, the Bedford Chamber of Commerce plans a Winter Walkabout where local businesses will offer special treats and sales to visitors. Parking is available at the Town Center/Town Hall complex.
