War Eagle Fair

 

The War Eagle fair was founded in 1954. It is a non-profit fair which works as an instrument in reviving traditional crafts and art. The main aim behind the formation of the War Eagle fair was to save these art and crafts from the danger of defunctness. An estimated 150,000 people visit the fair that held in May and October of each year. Till now, all of those traditions continue, while sales have exceeded up to $1 million in arts and crafts.

The Board of Directors of the non-profit association paid painstaking attention to quality of the products and offered visitors free admission and free parking.
