Looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? At the Nosara Holiday Art Fair you will find fresh seafood dishes, art and products handmade in Guanacaste, Costa Rica! Head to the vibrant beach town of Nosara, Costa Rica on December 14th from 10am-2pm at Pacifico Azul Restaurant on Playa Guiones for the Nosara Artisans Holiday Fair.
Beginning in 2012, Nosara Artisans was created to give local artists a place to sell their creations during the holiday and summer seasons. Organized by Kristen Brousseau and Emma Kinsey, the Nosara Holiday Fair is a non-profit open to everyone in the community.
According to organizer Emma Kinsey, “The mission of Nosara Artisans is to create fun events where we can show and sell our work. We aim to bring our community together through art and Nosara art faircreativity.” Since the first fair in October of 2012, the group has grown exponentially and features local artists all over the Nicoya peninsula.
Discover Handmade and Local Goods, Many Using Natural Materials from Nosara and Guanacaste
At the Nosara Artisans Fair you will find handmade (and local) accessories, clothing, paintings, ceramics, fabric art, furniture, glass art, lamps, jewelry, photos, up-cycled creations, and carved wood art. Much of the unique and impressive artwork is made using natural materials found in Nosara and its beaches.
This year’s fair will feature baked goods, organic breads, and Beach Blend Coffee, a coffee blend produced in Costa Rica. From Samara, NJ Bagels will be bringing her homemade bagels, pitas, hummus, and spreads and Bakers Dozens, a local Nosara favorite, will be serving up organic & gluten free breads, cakes & sweets.
Nosara community organizations will also be participating in the December fair. They will be educating and fundraising to support their important local causes.
“Nosara is a special place where we are very lucky to have a community that cares so much about living in harmony with the environment,” expressed Ashley Laux, jewelry artist.
The next Nosara Artisan Art Market is on Sunday, December 14th from 10-2pm at Pacifico Azul Restaurant, Playa Guiones, Nosara. There will be 4 more Nosara Artisan art fairs during the summer season: January 18th, February 8th, March 15th, and April 4th.
