Area church to host 10th annual holiday craft fair in Citrus Heights


By Mike Hazlip—
Promising more than 40 vendors, along with food and photos with Santa, Antelope Road Christian Fellowship will be hosting its 10th annual Holiday Boutique and Craft Fair this Saturday, December 4.

Women’s Ministry Fundraising Coordinator Melissa Kennedy told The Sentinel vendors will be set up both indoors and outdoors on the church grounds, located at 7951 Antelope Rd. The event is slated for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Kennedy said the craft fair was first held in 2011 and is now in its 10th year. She said a “North Pole” feature has been added to the event, where kids and families can come take a free photo with Santa and get a craft to take home. A soup cafe will also be hosted by the congregation’s Men’s ministry, serving up food for a donation.

Proceeds from booth rentals and raffle tickets will go to support a family affected by the California wildfires earlier this year, Kennedy said.

More information about the event is posted on the church’s website: www.myarcf.com.
