While the Little Falls Area Chamber of Commerce promotes many events across Morrison County, no event offers more economic stimulus than its annual Arts & Crafts Fair. It is traditionally held on the first weekend after Labor Day. In 2016, the Arts & Crafts Fair celebrates its 44th year. The event will sprawl across the streets of downtown Little Falls Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 10-11.
The 2016 Arts and Crafts Fair will include more than 600 vendors from 25 different states. The Arts and Crafts Fair attracts over 120,000 shoppers to Little Falls and Morrison County.
While most vendors offer handcrafted items, the Chamber provides a venue for commercial vendors as well. The Market Place Fair is on the west side of the Mississippi River where commercial vendors can display and sell items including many nationally recognized brands. Food booths and shuttle bus stops are positioned at key locations throughout the area.
