This weekend’s Territorial Days Arts & Crafts Show is packed with exhibitors, according to organizer Jill Currey.
“We’re sold out with spaces,” Currey said. “I’d say we have about 135 exhibitors.
Now in its 37th year, the show runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 9, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 10, at courthouse plaza.
There’s pretty much something for everyone from handcrafted items to things that have been significantly embellished, Currey said. However, one thing that’s different from the Offstreet Festival Arts & Crafts Show that was in the Chamber of Commece parking lot during Memorial Day weekend is that this show does not have any businesses representing themselves, she said. There are some nonprofits that do have booths, though.
Nonprofits who have been at the Territorial Days Arts & Crafts Show in the past include AARP, Granite Mountain Young Marines, Marine Corps League Copper State Detachment and the Prescott Gem & Mineral Club.
The festival will also see some nice treats from the food vendors who are going to be there as well, she said. Some are brand new to the event, such as a pastrami vendor, while others only come to a few of the shows, like the Greek Orthodox Church which will be selling gyros.
“They don’t come to every show,” she said.
