    Picnic Holiday Craft Fair
    The fine folks who have brought you the fine Picnic Indie Craft and Music fair since 2008 now bring you a special holiday edition of their great indie crafts. This is not your mother’s craft fair, but there is always some amazing stuff. A great place to pick up some funky, fantastic holiday gifts for your funky, fantastic friends.

    Victoria Mansion Holiday Display
    Call me sentimental, but visiting the amazing holiday decor at Victoria Mansion is one of my families favorite holiday traditions – and it’s a great way to support this unique Portland historic building. This year’s theme is Deck the Halls: the Carols of Christmas, and each room in the Mansion will be decorated by a professional designer inspired by a different Christmas carol from the Victorian period.
    11:30 am – 4:30 pm every day now through January 8th
    Visit the Victoria Mansion Christmas webpage for prices and details


    "Oh, that's one of my favorite places to visit!" - living in Portland, Maine I hear that all the time. So, when you visit, I want you to see more than just the tourist stuff that everyone sees. I want you to see the Portland I love. So, I write about it.

      You sound like you might know the answer to my question. I am looking for the coolest summer indie craft show in portland and am having a hard time finding something online. What is the summer version of PICNIC? If you have a link, I’d be much obliged!
