and Basic Fair Information


In 1933, the League held its first Craftsmen's Fair in the Crawford House barn in Crawford Notch. The Fair's success exceeded everyone's expectations with sales totaling $2,698. It was decided then to make the Fair an annual event. The next year the Fair was held in the Hancock Town Hall and Church Vestry. Other locations throughout the years have included the UNH Field House in Durham in 1939, the Holderness School in Plymouth 1940, Dartmouth College in Hanover in 1941, the Belknap Recreation Center in Gilford from 1948-1960, and Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro in 1962. In 1964, the Fair was moved to Mount Sunapee State Park (now Mount Sunapee Resort) in Newbury and, due to its tremendous growth there, has remained ever since.
