DYSART — The nonprofit Dysart Development Corporation (DDC) will host the community’s 50th annual Dysart Bazaar and Holiday Market on Saturday, with proceeds benefiting Union Community School District scholarships.
Open to the public at no charge, the event features a wide variety of artists selling their exclusive handmade crafts and homemade baked goods at the handicapped-accessible Community Building, at 418 Main St., Dysart, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event returns to its traditional second Saturday in November festivities, after a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Dysart Development Corporation is proud to again welcome visitors to this popular holiday event, to make Christmas shopping easy and to prepare for Thanksgiving get-togethers,” said DDC President Rhonda Lassen. “Take in the Dysart Bazaar and Holiday Market, then take in the unique shops downtown, to make a day of it in Dysart, and invite your friends and family to join you.”
Shoppers can select from a variety of original, handmade art, ranging from seasonal Santas, snowmen, and angels to stylish home décor, jewelry, accessories and more.
New this year are concessions available from volunteers raising funds for Dysart’s Little Knights Daycare Dysart campus. Breakfast and lunch items including the event’s famous turkey pasta salad and more will be served, with proceeds benefiting the new community day care center building that opened in Dysart in 2021.
