The Harvard Square Holiday Craft Fair, one of the oldest and most popular fairs in Boston, will celebrate its 29th season in 2014.
The fair takes place from Dec 5-7 (FRI-SUN), Dec 12-14 (FRI-SUN), and Dec 18-23 (THURS-TUES), 2014 in the basement and courtyard of the First Parish Church.
The Church is located on the corner of Church Street and Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge and runs for 12 days this year. The fair is juried and includes a changing mix of New England craftspeople and world travelling importers featuring many wonderful gift items. There is always a great selection of beautiful, original and affordable gifts. Talking to the craftspeople who make what they sell gives shoppers a connection to what they are buying that is just not possible at the mall, through a catalogue or online. It's a high energy alternative marketplace with a great soundtrack, where people see old friends and make new ones - a taste of the old Harvard Square. Admission is always free.
