If you’re in the mood to do some shopping and want to support Fair Trade artists and crafters, check out the Annual Fair Trade Festival at O’Conner Brewing Company. Every item at the Fair Trade Festival must be made under fair wage and fair labor standards, so you can do your holiday shopping guilt-free! Goodies and gifts like Fair Trade chocolate, coffees, crafts, and accessories will be available for purchase. Even local crafters and artists are required to use fair trade or recycled/upcycled parts when making their products. Additionally, many of the vendors donate products for a raffle to benefit their sponsors.
Join us for music, dancing, shopping, and learn about how Fair Trade enables you, the consumer, to make a difference with your dollar.
