Each year approximately 100 exhibitors converge on the tiny village of Peru, Vermont located off Route 11 to display and sell their arts, but most of all to be discovered by craft seekers of all types.
Early in the morning of the fair, booths, displays, and crafts are set up, smells of food begin to stretch across and before too long, the parade of whimsical characters officially opens the Fair and music and entertainment fill the air.
