Each November we hold two Christmas gift shows in the Civic Center Ballroom. It’s a pleasant way to spend a Saturday, browsing through the crafts, shopping for that special Christmas gift, visiting with friends and neighbors, and enjoying refreshments or lunch at the snack bar.
Feb Fest is our annual chocolate, Valentine’s Day gifts, arts and crafts fair at the Helena Civic Center. With about 70 vendors, it is a fun place to get those special Valentine gifts for all the “sweeties” in your life. There will be chocolate, treats and Valentine gifts including a host of Montana made arts, crafts and jewelry.
To illustrate that there’s still beauty and usefulness in recycled things, the Civic Center Board’s Feb Fest features Artwear Fashion Shows. From elegant to avant garde, from accessories to footwear and everything in between, anything wearable is fair game for an artist’s transformation to wearable art. Reuse, repurpose, and reconsider what’s in your closet and what you find at the thrift store, your rag bag, or in the bottom of your fabric stash and come “strut your stuff”.
