Dear Artisans and Food Vendors:


The Lakeport Kiwanis 25th Annual Memorial Weekend Craft Fair will be Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24 at the Natural High School (NHS) location on Main Street, on the shores of Clear Lake in Lakeport, CA. 


As in the past, all art and crafts are to be made by the seller and supplementing with other items will not be permitted.  Note:  we will have several vendors with imported handcrafts, and they will be in the international section of the Craft Fair.


Vendors are required to be set up and open during the hours of the Fair.  New hours beginning this year are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.  No early packups, please.  Kiwanis Lakeport will be serving a Pancake Breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, so vendors may wish to be open early on that day.  Each booth will receive two breakfast tickets.


The entry fee is for both days and includes the City of Lakeport Business License fee.  Spaces are 10’x15’.  Food vendors must contact the County of Lake Health Dept. at 707-263-1164 for their temporary food facility permit, current fees and application.


Our Club will maintain its tradition of limiting the number of participating vendors and providing a wide variety of merchandise.  New vendors will be juried and are asked to submit photographs of their art/crafts.  Prior year participants will be given preference in the selection process but ALL applications with fees must be received by the jury date of April 25, 2015.  A response to applications will be sent by April 30th.


On-site overnight vendor parking as well as camping for self-contained RVs will be provided for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.  No electricity is available and generators must be pre-approved.  Set up time is after 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 22nd.


Proceeds from the Memorial Weekend Craft Fair are used for scholarships and Kiwanis Lakeport thanks you for your interest.  For booth fee info and if you have any questions, please contact Pat Cox at 707-263-8326 or email

Hello Lake County Artists….

I am doing a catalog of Lake County Artists.

I have attached an example with a page for Sherry Harris.

I need your photo, bio and examples of your work.


If I have already created a page for you… Please disregard.

Thank you,



Art is a journey for me reflecting inner emotions and visuals that captivate my imagination.   

It wasn't until 2002, that I started painting in earnest.  I work in a number of mediums and frequently mix mediums and techniques to achieve a painting that has the right feel. 

Recently, I've been exploring two new abstract techniques that I learned under the tutelage of John Ells. One series is titled “Celestial” and the second “Faces.” I hope they are as thought provoking for you as they are to me.
