92nd Annual Candy Dance Arts & Craft Faire

If you’ve never been to Genoa's annual Candy Dance Arts and Crafts Faire, prepare to be amazed. What seems like every square inch of open space in this little Sierra Nevada foothills town fills with vendor booths offering unique and eclectic handmade gifts. Held on the last full weekend of September every year, it often jump starts holiday shopping for residents and visitors alike.

The event will take place Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30 this year and is the longest standing event not only in Nevada but throughout the nation. More than 300 booths will sell handmade arts and crafts, entertainment will be provided both days, and almost 40 food and activity booths for the kids make this a very family-friendly event.

Be on the lookout for red & white polka dot aprons at the Eastern Star Bake Sale booth, which will be located on the front porch of the Masonic Lodge at the southwest corner of Genoa Lane and Foothill Road. 100% of their proceeds will benefit Nevada Military Support Alliance, which helps wounded soldiers and the families of fallen soldiers in Nevada.

Admission is free, and parking is available for just $5 per vehicle in designated lots at Foothill Road south of Genoa, Genoa Lane east of Genoa, and Jacks Valley Road north of Genoa. Free shuttles run throughout the day to and from the fair. Free parking will be available at Douglas High School and the Carson Valley Inn in Minden. Shuttle service to and from Genoa will be available at these locations for $2 per person (round trip) running during fair hours on both Saturday and Sunday.
