Genoa Peddlar’s Fair to be bigger this year

Staff Reports

The fourth annual Peddlars’ Fair to be held Candy Dance weekend, Sept. 23-24, in Genoa promises to be “bigger and better than ever,” said Martha Williams of L and M Promotions. Funds from the event, featuring antiques, crafts and entertainment, will aid the Genoa Sesquicentennial Committee with plans for a gigantic historic fair in June 2001.

Between 50 and 100 vendors are expected. Additional land has been added to provide four acres around the Dake House Antique Emporium and Antiques Plus, an area larger than Mormon Station and Genoa Town Park, where the Town of Genoa has held the Candy Dance Arts and Crafts Faire since the mid-1970s. Some of the vendors have returned to the Peddlars’ Fair each year since 1997.

L and M Promotions, headed by Williams and Laurie Hickey, sponsors several events a year, with funds going to charities or causes. The Renaissance Faire held the last weekend in July attracts a couple of thousand visitors and this past month benefitted the Genoa Sesquicentennial Committee. Scheduled for the coming Sesquicentennial year 2001 are antique shows in January and April and a house and garden tour, all to benefit the Genoa Sesquicentennial Committee.
