A Humboldt County Tradition
The North Country Fair is an annual two-day festival held on the Arcata Plaza in Arcata, CA the third full weekend in September. Presented by the Same Old People since 1974, this fall we are celebrating our 43rd year!
2016 North Country Fair September 17 & 18
The Fair includes around 200 craft, food, and information booths, two parades, two stages, and a lawn performance area. An estimated 10,000 people come from all over to celebrate the diversity of our community and the Fall Equinox.
The Fair is a gathering of craftspeople, artisans, musicians, and community groups celebrating local resilience, cooperation, mutual aid, and respect for all life on earth.
In an effort to reduce our impact on the planet, the Fair has again teamed up with Zero Waste Humboldt to work toward a goal of zero waste. Look for ZWH volunteers around the Fair to help you sort your compost, recycling and trash!
The Same Old People again invite you to observe the Equinox and the change of seasons at the North Country Fair!
Please join us on the Arcata Plaza, Saturday and Sunday, September 17 & 18 from 10am to 6pm.
