Calico Fort, located very near the original fort site, was developed to promote our folk heritage of the hand made arts. It is a place where first rate artists and craftsmen can show and sell their talents.
Each year hundreds of new exhibitors are contacted in an effort to find the very best. The folks at Calico Fort work for months in advance to make sure you feel welcome, and that you enjoy a real old-time Country Fair. Because Calico Fort is planned to present new ideas, it will never grow old.
