Carbon County Fair is seeking crafters and display vendors for the fair to be held Aug. 11 to 15 in Palmerton. Vendors selling craft items are encouraged to participate, as there will be a specially designated craft tent. All food vendor spaces are filled at this time.

A vendor's midway decorating contest with "Proud of our heritage, envisioning the future," will be held this year, with an opportunity to win free or partially funded space at next year's event.

Vendors interested in joining Carbon County Fair, can call Bob Silliman, president at (570) 325-8685 or can visit the fair's website at www.carboncountyfair.com. For more information about the fair, go to the website or call (610) 826-1862.
