“From fine arts, to pottery, to ceramics, to custom-made jewelry and more, the festival is a terrific way to get a head start on your holiday shopping,” chamber Executive Director Susie Cupp said. “This definitely is one of our favorite events according to our local residents and the many visitors from around the region and the committee does an outstanding job in pulling it all together.”

“Literally thousands of people have gone through this annual event and we’d love to see everyone from Elk City and the surrounding communities come out and have fun with us again this year,” Cupp said.
