Sun City West is the backdrop for one of the Valley’s largest craft fairs and the start of the holiday shopping season for some.

The 34th annual Fall Arts and Crafts Fair populates the R.H. Johnson Recreation Center campus today from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with thousands of visitors expected.

Approximately 25 chartered clubs from the Recreation Centers of Sun City West are participating in the bi-annual event. There also is a craft festival in the spring, but the fall fair is the larger of the two festivals.

The campus, at 19803 R.H. Johnson Blvd., includes the Arts and Crafts Courtyard, the Social Hall and the Village Store.

Katy O’Grady, an RCSCW spokeswoman, said they’re doing what they can to accommodate the clubs and patrons for the craft fair.

“We’re moving a few of the clubs out front, so it’s easier for people to get through because it gets so crowded,” O’Grady said.

Thousands of one-of-a-kind items are featured in this annual extravaganza. From metal work, clay and ceramic pieces to fine art, holiday crafts and utilitarian items, the fair boasts a wide range of offerings. Other items include jewelry, handmade quilts, leather, stained glass, calligraphy, baskets, silk flowers, porcelain pieces, decorative art painting, wooden objects, copper enameling, woven works and more.

Katy VanLeuven, Village Store supervisor and coordinator for the festival, said they have more vendors at the fair, so they’ve expanded the layout.

“We’re going use both indoors and outdoors and the weather is going to beautiful, so it’ll be the perfect time to shop,” she said.

The clubs accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Doughnuts, lunch and various beverages and snacks will be available for purchase.

O’Grady also said the event offers an opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping without having to fight traffic to get to malls and other shopping areas, plus the sales tax is lower.
