Kings Mountain Art Fair this weekend

 

The Kings Mountain Art Fair, a popular local tradition for 48 years, takes place Labor Day weekend, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Sept. 3-5, at 13889 Skyline Blvd. in the hills above Woodside.

The fair opens with a pancake breakfast with the artists at 8 a.m. The artists' booths are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

Many of the 135 juried artists are drawn to Kings Mountain for its redwood forest setting, says Dawn Neisser, fair director. Along with the juried artists, there will be 30 mountain folk artists offering candles, jewelry, hand-turned wood, and more.

Instead of hiring food vendors, community volunteers cook the food themselves, serving burgers, grilled corn, as well as locally brewed beer and wine.

Kiddie Hollow will offer many activities for children, including playing in a Native American teepee, face painting, crafts, and balloon art.

A portion of all art sales will go to the community's volunteer fire brigade and to Kings Mountain Elementary School.
