Markesan’s 17th annual Homespun 

Holidays is set to return in 2019 on 

Friday & Saturday, November 22 & 23, 

at Markesan Elementary School.

Hosted by the Markesan Chamber of 

Commerce, both days’ featured events 

include the always-popular Homespun 

Craft Fair, boasting over 50 local crafters, 

artists and direct-sales representatives, 

in addition to a must-see silent auction 

with over 30 baskets, some worth several 

hundred dollars.

Saturday starts bright and early with 

the Chamber of Commerce Kids Zone 

hosting several free kids activities, with 

the one and only Santa Claus also ex-

pected to stop on by.

During the family-friendly event, 

while mom and dad are finding one-of-

a-kind homemade and handmade items 

at the craft fair, kids will have plenty to 

do at the Kids Zone, which includes 

activities such as a bounce house, make-

and-take crafts, cookie decorating, face 

painting, and even a reading corner.

With planning for the event lasting 

throughout the year, there’s no telling 

what new activities will be added as the 

weekend draws near. You’ll just have to 

wait and find out!

But don’t forget to mark your calendars 

now for the 17th annual Homespun 

Holidays, hosted by the Markesan 

Chamber of Commerce on Friday & 

Saturday, November 22 & 23 at Marke-

san Elementary School.
