Support Small Businesses at the 2016 Winter Wonderland Craft Fair

FORT MILL, S.C., (November 7, 2016)— Over 150 craft vendors will show their wares at this year’s Winter Wonderland Craft Fair on Saturday, November 26 at the Anne Springs Close Greenway. Attendees can shop from a variety of homemade and handmade items such as infused olive oil, soaps, lotions, candles, pottery, knit and crocheted items and more, promising a unique item for every person on your holiday shopping list. There will be food trucks and a door prize raffle with contributions from the vendors.

“When you purchase items from a local vendor, you are supporting a small business. The Saturday after Thanksgiving has become “Small Business Saturday” in an attempt to push back against the big box store Black Friday madness,” says Mina McLean, community events coordinator for the Greenway. “The Winter Wonderland Craft Fair is a perfect way to embrace Small Business Saturday and support the Greenway at the same time.”

Admission is free and the event will be held rain or shine at the Greenway’s picturesque Dairy Barn from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a special event parking fee of $5 per car.

During the Craft Fair will be the annual Paws with Claus event from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., at which visitors are invited to make holiday memories with their pet and Santa. Bring your own camera and take photos at the historic Graham Cabin. A $10 sitting fee will benefit the Mary Warner Mack Memorial Dog Park.

Just minutes south of Charlotte, the Greenway is a 2,100-acre natural preserve that offers hiking, biking, kayaking, concerts and community festivals. The Craft Fair is located at 250 Dairy Barn Lane, Fort Mill. For information, please call 803-547-4575 or go to
