THORNDIKE — Crafters and holiday shoppers alike will congregate at the Mount View Complex Saturday for one of the area’s largest craft fairs.

The 31st Annual Mount View Holiday Craft Fair will take place Dec. 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 577 Mount View Road. This year there will be over 200 Maine artists and small businesses at the free event, according to organizers.

All proceeds from booth rental fees will benefit Project Graduation, a parent-sponsored event on graduation night that allows students to have a safe and fun celebration.

According to Project Graduation adviser Craig Tozier, last year’s event was canceled because of the pandemic and this year’s fair will require attendees and crafters to wear face masks. Because of social distancing concerns, he said, “I don’t think that we will have Santa there this year.”

A parent group organized to raise funds for Project Graduation will also have a concession stand offering mac and cheese, chili, chop suey, meatballs and beef stew and other foods. Tozier said they will also run a silent auction and sell assorted baked goods. The proceeds from the parents’ fundraising will be used for prizes, food and other items to enhance the Project Gradation experience.

Booths at the fair will include homemade crafts, Christmas gifts, basket raffles, silent auction items, local handmade jewelry, ornaments and aromatherapy oils and soaps, to name a few. For more information or for vendor inquiries, call  Tozier at 568-3255 or email
