The Professional Artisans CO_OP (PAC) will present a Fine Art & Craft event at the Park in Graeagle on the 17th and 18th of August.Hours are 9 to 5 on Saturday and 9 to 4 on Sunday. The Graeagle Art and Wine Event will feature all handmade fine art and crafts. Patrons are encouraged to discuss the work and interact with the artists. There will be no imported goods. The Fair will also include beer and wine tasting plus food and music.
The PAC was formed in 2016 when a group of artisan friends decided that they would rather control their own shows as opposed to working with promoters.At last count there were over 170 artists and craft persons in the non-profit organization. The PAC event list includes 7 Art & Craft Fairs each year. Locations range from Mt Shasta in early June to Chico at Christmas time. Vendors are charged a reasonable fee and share the responsibilities for putting on the show instead of paying professional organizers.
The last PAC show, previous to Graeagle, was held at the famous Bidwell Inn in Chester on July 27 and 28.There is another show scheduled for the Bidwell on the 10th and 11th of August.
