The War Eagle Valley’s leaves are beginning to turn and the temperature is cooling, you know what that means? Our annual War Eagle Mill Fall Craft Fair is almost here! We hope you can join us this October 15-18th to shop thousands of crafts, enjoy live music and eat tasty Fair food. Before you travel out, here are some good-to-know facts to make your visit even better. See you soon! – Miss Millie
Top 5 Things To Know About 2015 Fair:
1) Only One Vehicle On the Bridge At A Time.
The historic War Eagle Bridge, as many of you know, is over 100 years old, and has been recently inspected for repair or replacement in the near future. Until then, the Benton County Highway Department has set the following regulations for the bridge:
- Only one vehicle is allowed to cross at a time.
- Only vehicles weighing 3 tons or lower are allowed to cross the bridge.
- No box trucks or vehicles pulling trailers are allowed on the bridge.
- Pedestrian traffic will be limited on the bridge.
To lessen the inconvenience, we encourage visitors traveling from the north or south to park on one side of the bridge and cross over by foot to reach the craft booths on both sides.
2) The Fall Craft Fair consists of three shows in one.
Make sure to grab a Fair map inside the Mill to find the artists located in the War Eagle Mill Craft Fair area, as we are one show among three. Locations are broken down by the following:
– The War Eagle Fair is ran by the Sutton Family and located in tents across the War Eagle Bridge. This Fair has been a tradition for over 60 years.
– The War Eagle Mill Fall Craft Fair is located in the Mill’s parking lot area.
– The Sharp Arts & Crafts Show is located in the fields adjacent to the Mill. The Sharp Show and the Mill Show have over 40 years of history.
3) The Bean Palace Restaurant Will Be Serving Food Outside. Hungry for our famous beans and cornbread? This year, it’ll be easier to grab breakfast or lunch, by stopping at the Bean Palace Restaurant’s food booth in the outside lot. It’s a simple but hearty menu that’ll keep you full and energized while you shop crafts and enjoy the live music.
4) FREE Samples Served in Millie’s Kitchen Inside the Mill.
Follow the delicious smell whisking its way through the side door of the Mill and chew on free samples of warm cookies, bars, and numerous other treats from Millie’s Kitchen. Smiling faces will be waiting to serve you and share their recipes.
5) The Craft Fair’s First Year of Sponsors.
2015 marks the first year we offered sponsorship opportunities to a variety of businesses looking to raise awareness and reach our visitors. A big thank you to the following sponsors:
Looking forward to another successful Craft Fair!
