Musicians: Perform at the 22nd Annual Holiday Craft Market!

Two musicians play and sing at the Holiday Craft Market

The City of Arcata Recreation Division is looking for volunteer musicians to play at the 22nd annual Holiday Craft Market.

During this two-day event, artists, crafters and musicians come together to share their talents with the community to help raise funds for Arcata Recreation Division’s Youth Development Scholarship Fund, which supports youth in the community by subsidizing fees for recreation programs.

In 2022, the Holiday Craft Market fundraiser contributed over $8,000 in scholarship funds.  The Youth Development Scholarship Fund provided $4,827 in assistance to 59 youth for classes, programs, and camps.

The Holiday Craft Market will take place on Saturday, December 9 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 10 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Arcata Community Center located at 321 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway in Arcata.

Musicians who would like to showcase their talent are asked to email or call 707-822-7091. For more information about the Holiday Craft Market visit
