December isn’t just a big month for Christmas tree lightings, appearances from Santa Claus and holiday light displays, it is also a huge month for craft fairs! With popular holidays such as Christmas and Hanukkah residing in the month of December, it’s easy to imagine why! Craft fairs and shows are an ideal place to go to browse for unique holiday gifts and ideas. Most of the vendors are local Long Islanders looking to display their talents and share their passions with other Long Islanders. By giving these holiday craft vendors your business, instead of big-name retailers, you help to support small businesses and Long Island entrepreneurs!

Check out these holiday craft fairs happening across the Island so you can cross off the rest of the names on your holiday shopping list!
