‘Get Outta Town’ for a Real Old Fashioned Street Faire

It’s such a cliché, but I’ll say it anyway: There really is “something for everyone” at the Lewiston Peddlers’ Faire. The Faire is a North State staple and I would be completely negligent if I failed to name it as this week’s “Get Outta Town” feature.

I mean it – there’s something for everyone. You’ll find me there amidst the shabby chic, antiques, jewelry, junk, kettle corn, whirly gigs and Indian tacos. So, let’s all do a little dance to ward off the rain and “Get Outta Town” for one of my favorite North State events.

In case you’ve never been there, here’s a bit from the official Lewiston Peddlers’ Faire website:
A real old fashion street faire – antiques, collectible, arts & crafts, food booths, entertainment. The 22nd annual fair is located in beautiful historic Lewiston, California. Stroll along Deadwood Street in historic Lewiston as more than 100 vendors sell their wares. Enjoy award-winning local wines from Trinity County wineries. The historic town lies beneath the Trinity Alps and is bordered by Trinity and Lewiston Lakes – and of course the beautiful Trinity River runs right through it.

What: 22nd Annual Lewiston Peddlers’ Faire
When: Sat., June 4 – 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

She does not have a computer so could you please e-mail me, (her sister here in Redding) and I can get infor. for her. Or you can call me at 530 357-3926.

    Thanks Jeanne Willis

  2. Jeanne, Adam wrote this article nearly a year ago. I don't know anything about it, but maybe one of anewscafe.com's readers can help you with an answer so you can pass it on to your sister. Good luck.

    I belong to a group here in Redding called Redding Handmade. A lot of the people in the group are involved in various arts and craft fairs. I'll contact the group via our FB page, and ask about the Peddlers Fair. I'll call you at the number above if I learn anything that would help your sister.
