North Conway, NH - The first in a series of artisan fairs presented by the Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce will take place at the Chamber offices (2617 White Mountain Highway) on May 23, 2009 from 10am-4pm.  Here's a chance to shop for unique locally made items from talented New England.  With everything from fabrics to fine soaps, the following artists and their products will be featured.

Scrollwork by Herb's Scrollsaw Art.

Memorial Day means a weekend of craft fairs in North Conway Village, as the Gibson Center will hold their annual Memorial Day craft fair right next door to the Chamber, featuring artists from throughout New England from 10am-5pm on the front lawn both Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24.

Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to plan a getaway to Mt Washington Valley.  Not only will unique crafters be found throughout North Conway Village, but the 20th annual Wildquack River Festival release of 3000 rubber duckies for great prizes on May 24 and the opening of  Mt Washington Valley's family attractions for the summer means it's the perfect time for family getaways before the busy summer season begins.  For more information and to plan a getaway to Mt Washington Valley, visit or call 1-800-DO-SEE-NH (800-367-3364).
