Country Living Fair Stone Mountain, GA 2017
This was my sixth year attending the Country Living Fair and I love it more and more each year! For the past few years my sister, daughters and daughter-in-law join me in an awesome girlfriend weekend! The Country Living Fair truly is like opening the pages of this fantastic magazine…and walking through to see examples of beautiful country decor, collectibles and crafts.
Situated in a beautifully wooded area with paths in Stone Mountain Park meandering through a section of the park over 200 vendors shared their amazing and inspiring wares. For eight years, Country Living has been hosting this fair in various sites of the country: Rhinebeck, NY; Columbus, OH and Nashville, TN.
Country Living Fair is an Amazing Experience
There are fairs everywhere throughout the year. How does Country Living Fair excel above the others? It’s the emphasis of the magazine and of the editors themselves. Each year, staff members and editors attend bringing that personal touch as they meet the readers of Country Living.
It’s the emphasis on what readers come to the magazine for…the relaxed, country living lifestyle. These elements that lend an emotional tie to what makes country life wonderful. There’s a come sit at our porch feel to the magazine. There’s a come and imagine, learn and be inspired to bring home the best of country life. There are so many examples of what you can find to bring farmhouse charm to your home.
These things are brought to the visitors of the fair through the vendors. Those images of homes and rooms filled with decor that hearken to a slower-paced lifestyle are featured along with creative craft ideas that add a spark of interest to any home’s decor.
This year, the weather was unusually wet and cold. This made the time challenging, but those with Country Living Fair and the vendors were troopers bringing on their best in this tough situation. Those who braved the cold found wonderful decor items. Several booths had creative winter decor including a lot of vintage sleds!
Classes, Seminars and Demonstrations
As a part of the fair, attendees can attend demonstrations in crafts and cooking as well as participate in hands-on classes! This makes for a well-rounded fair experience. Also, there are several food trucks and vendors with amazing dishes! There’s nothing like enjoying a great fair and fair food!
You’ll find so much to love at the Country Living Fair! Each vendor displays their offerings beautifully in such a way that inspires creativity. I’ve shared some Country Living Fair reflections here.
We’re already planning to attend next year’s Country Living Fair. Next year will be the 40th anniversary for the magazine. I can only imagine how amazing it will be – no matter what the weather will be like? Have you ever gone? Do you love attending fairs?
