How to Volunteer and Get Tickets for the 51st Annual KPFA Holiday Benefit Craft Fair

For 50 years, our winter fair has served as the largest off-air fundraiser for Berkeley’s KPFA radio. Over the decades this craft fair has become a Bay Area cultural institution. The Fair features more than 150 diverse exhibitors, including both master artisans and emerging newcomers. Artists and craftspeople are a vital part of our local, small business community, and craft fairs like ours provide an opportunity for them to showcase their work to the public.

This year the Annual KPFA Benefit Craft Fair will take place at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, located in Pleasanton, CA. Visitors can enjoy the beautiful Amador Valley, along with the outstanding line-up of vendors. Delicious food is catered in house by Spectra. DJ Andy Cabic of Vetiver lends a lively vibe with a curated set list. Proceeds from the door benefit KPFA radio.
