Carbondale Mountain Fair 2017

A late afternoon thunderstorm rolling through the valley could not stop the masses from arriving at Carbondale’s 46th annual Mountain Fair. The fair hosted a bevy of art vendors from near and far. The rain was no match for the energy created by the people, the music and the variety of food and libations.

Entering through the Exit sign we fast-tracked it to trying the New Belgium Flip IPA and then finding the bonsai tree tent. Speak no more. As budding adults, our taste in craft fairs has been experiencing a slow shift to more aesthetically pleasing goods. I watched as my friend locked eyes with a little bonsai and I could tell that $39 dollars later she had found her new companion in her tiny apartment.

As I wandered through the vendors I was struck by the art of Susan Elliot and would have walked away with a new painting had it not been for my looming rent check that was due shortly. We did however treat ourselves to the food; infused goat cheese, shrimp tacos, and crispy funnel cake provided by local purveyors, all consumed as local bands performed and people dressed in alter-egos danced.

As the sunset and we made for the car, we left feeling happy with full bellies and a bit of a buzz. The energy was high and the bands were getting going as night crept into Carbondale.
