“From one year of social distancing to 50 years of socializing.”
It’s hard to believe that 50 years ago the Carbondale Mountain Fair came into being. Brought together by volunteers, lead by the Mother of the Fair, Laurie Loeb, the first few years hosted a traveling chautauqua, which quickly evolved into a locally-based, volunteer-run, non-sponsored festival that exemplifies the values of Carbondale; Collaboration, Creativity, Education, Volunteerism, Curiosity and Inclusion.
We will celebrate these values with a fair that will be memorable for all who attend in person or listen on the radio. The fair will spread out beyond its comfortable home of Sopris Park to allow for COVID friendly interactions, but the heart+soul of the fair will be all the love, history and humanity that have built community through art in Carbondale. Join us July 23–25th 2021 for this summertime tradition!
