Our Summer fair coincides with the Los Alamos County Fair and Rodeo and is held on the lawn of the picturesque Fuller Lodge. For this fair, around 100 juried artisans display their handcrafted work in a field of white tents as the County Parade floats down Central Ave. Our Fall fair is an indoor venue with around 65 artists selling to those who have started their holiday shopping early.
