The Marne Community and Spouses’ Club (MCSC) is hosting a Holiday Craft Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Richmond Hill City Center, 520 Cedar St. in J.F. Gregory Park.

The fair, which is free and open to the public, will feature more than 50 local crafters, bakers and vendors. Shoppers can find home décor, wreaths, ornaments, clothing, accessories and more. Families can also take a picture with Santa for $5.

“We’ve got a variety of vendors so there’s something for everyone whether you want a gift for your kids, your family, your pet or yourself!” said MCSC President Stephanie Tucker.

Vendor spots will be available until Oct. 31. The $60 fee includes a 6-foot table and electricity if requested. No cooking is allowed on site, but bakers may bring wrapped cookies, cakes or confections to sell. Vendors may apply at or by emailing

Proceeds from booth sales will benefit the MCSC’s annual scholarships and grants. Scholarships for spouses and children of soldiers and grants for local community organizations that benefit soldiers are given away every May. This year’s goal is to raise $30,000.
