ST. GEORGE — This year’s St. George Business Alliance (SGBA) “Yuletide in St. George” holiday kick-off event will be Friday and Saturday, November 26 and 27.
Along Rte. 131 and in the villages of Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde, St. George business owners and organizations are holding craft fairs and sales of artwork, antiques, books, ornaments, Dutch bulbs, balsam wreaths, unique gifts, stocking stuffers and food items. Red “YULETIDE” signs and colorful event maps will identify participating locations.
This is the 17th year that St. George merchants and nonprofits are welcoming holiday shoppers over Thanksgiving weekend. Cancelled last year because of Covid, “Yuletide” is back in 2021… with more than 20 shops, galleries, restaurants, and food venues open for business.
On Saturday, November 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Odd Fellows and Granite Gallery Maine will host craft fairs at their Tenants Harbor locations. And the Jackson Memorial Library and St. George Historical Society, also in Tenants Harbor, will be open with art, crafts, and historical memorabilia on display.
“Looking to avoid current online ordering and distribution challenges?” said SBGA, in a news release. “The SGBA invites you to support our St. George businesses by ‘shopping local’ this holiday season.”
Masks are required for all vendors and shoppers at both craft fairs, and CDC guidelines for masks, safe distancing, and hand-sanitizing will be followed at all SGBA member locations.
