For 39 years, Ware Fair has brought only the best hand-made crafts and wares to the CWU campus, from almond roca and fudge to ceramics and scarves. With over 50 artists from the Northwest, each year brings something a little bit different. All vendors must pass a jury process to ensure that every item sold, from food to quilts, is of high quality and not mass-produced. There will be an information booth as well as a vendor directory, so attendees can easily find their way through the fair. Holiday music will round out the festive atmosphere. This year, the lineup includes singers from CWU?s Theatre Arts department who will be caroling throughout the building, a pianist who will be performing a variety of holiday tunes, and the always-popular singer-songwriter Eric E.
