“Will there be a Winter Arts Faire this year?” – you ask…  well, YES there will be. But, like so many things this year, it will look a little bit different! 

This year because there are no venues available to safely accommodate the almost 4000 people that participate in the Winter Arts Faire, we have decided to BLOW it UP!  Picture a BLITZ of winter wonderfulness spread ACROSS THE TOWN!! That’s right. We will showcase a listing of all the artists and what they are doing from November 27 – December 31st on our website for you to peruse and choose whether to purchase their work online, or see where to find them for in-person shopping. Additionally, we moved the Annual Winter Art Walk the "BLITZ!walk" up a week to November 27th to maximize the overall BLITZfulness of the Winter Arts BLITZ!. You will be able to find participating arts businesses, their hours of operation, and their special events on our website!!!

The Winter Arts BLITZ! will begin on Friday, November 27th at 9:00 am and we will continue to post, support, promote, and update all of your favorite Ketchikan area Artists and Art Businesses throughout the month of December!!! This Winter Arts BLITZ! The directory will be on the front page of our website!

But wait that's not all!!!

We are partnering with the Chamber of Commerce in a community-wide event: “Merry Merchants and Munch”, and in Providence Properties' “Small Business Selfie Sweepstakes” to encourage a shop local extravaganza!!! These buy local incentive programs will give prizes to people that spend money at registered local merchants. Each $100 spent gives you a chance to win a ton of fun prizes from the Chamber!!! Each selfie you submit with #shopktn2020 gives you a chance to win fun prizes from Providence Properties!! Each participating artist and business will have participation posters! Get your "Merry Merchants and Munch" punch cards at participating artists and merchants around town! A full list will be on the Chambers page and in the Daily News.

Get everything on your gift list LOCALLY while supporting artists and arts businesses in your community.

Don't miss out on this wonderful, safe, and easy new way to support local artisans and arts businesses!
