Cascabel Holiday Community Fair
Saturday, December 3, 2016 @ 10:00 am - Sunday, December 4, 2016 @ 4:00 pm UTC-7
The 36th Annual Cascabel Community Fair is held on the banks of the San Pedro River on Saturday and Sunday, December 3rd and 4th, 2016, 10am-4pm each day.
The Cascabel Community Fair is a celebration of rural Arizona beauty, history, hospitality, diversity and artistic expression in an awe-inspiring outdoor setting. Cascabel is located along the banks of the beautiful San Pedro River about an hour and a half drive from Tucson. Take I-10 through Benson to exit 306. Head north through Pomerene. Follow the signs for 20 more miles on a scenic country road.
Event sponsors, the Cascabel Community Center, Volunteer Fire Department, and Community Garden will serve a homemade lunch and desserts and hold a dollar raffle for a multitude of prizes, including a homemade quilt. Live music adds to the ambiance of this rural adventure; featured artists include on Saturday afternoon Way out West, a trio who writes and performs country western music and The Bufflegrass Band performs bluegrass on Sunday afternoon. Vince and Friends will entertain Saturday morning and Sunday morning will showcase Evelyn Roper and local talent.
There are three very different sites all within pleasant walking distance. Handicap parking is available. The Oasis Bird Sanctuary conducts scheduled tours of their exotic birds and sells products that support animal rescue efforts. Akasha Center of Light offers original paintings by the resident artist and unique Christmas decorations. Cascabel Clayworks, a cottage industry and homestead established in 1970, will host an open house. Joining them will be many other fine artisans displaying their work in fiber, metal, wood, jewelry, clay, leather, photography and more. You will enjoy touring the wide variety of locally made products and fresh farm produce displayed under the mesquite canopy.
Please remember, rural Arizona still has gravel roads. You’ll be traveling five miles beyond the pavement. Take your time, keep the dust down, and enjoy the scenery. We look forward to seeing you and sharing some traditional rural neighborhood fun.
