Santa is coming to Crestone

CRESTONE — Santa’s visiting Crestone once again this year, this time at the “And so this is Christmas...” Holiday Bazaar, which is being held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25, at the T Road Brewing Company, 120 W. Silver Ave., upholding the tradition of a holiday fair being held in Crestone the weekend after Thanksgiving.

There will be vendors and carolers, and T Road will have refreshments available. Kick off the season right, support your local artisans, and get a big dose of the holiday spirit. There will be many handmade and one-of-a-kind gifts you can purchase early and get shipped off to non-local friends and family to beat the holiday rush.

For the kids, the bazaar will offer unique holiday arts and crafts to keep them safely entertained, including ornament-making. If all goes as planned, they may even get to make ornaments with their own pictures in there, taken and printed by Lori Nagel (Sunflower).

Nagel will have her holiday photo booth set up all day, offering on-site prints of your pictures. Santa will be visiting from 1-3 p.m., and the kids will receive some stellar gift bags, once again being coordinated by Cathy Goevert. If you’d like to donate toys or treats for the children, either text Goevert at 720-402-6430 or message her on Facebook, or contact Lori Booth at [email protected]. They would like to receive all donations by Nov. 23 to give them enough time to assemble and organize the gifts.

To be affordable and profitable for vendors, booths will cost just $15 for an outdoor booth and $25 for an indoor one, on a first-come, first-served basis. Vendor applications are available at www.crestonemeansbusiness.com/holidaybazaar along with the most updated information about this event.

Patrons can make a whole day of it at T-Road with live music from the band, CresTown, starting at 6 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 25, also happens to be Small Business Saturday — a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.

Thanks to all the volunteers who are making this possible: Lori and Mike Booth and T Road Brewing Company, Arielle Blackwell, Christina Lakish, Cathy Goevert, Eden Elderberry, Lori Nagel, and Shirley Motz; all of whom are dedicated to making this an event to remember.
