PHOTO Raspberry Festival attracts more than 3,000
visitors each year who come to eat, play and shop.
Arts & Crafts Fair
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Arts & Crafts Fair, which runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., is
a highlight of the family-focused Raspberry Festival. Every year, more
than 3,000 attendees shop at the event for unique, handmade crafts and
Vendors are responsible for their own tables and tents and are asked
not to sell bread or raspberry products, as those are specialty items
sold by the Benedictine Sisters. Each year, a limited batch of
raspberry wine is crafted exclusively for the festival; as well as
homemade raspberry jam, vinegar, popcorn, shortcake and more. Register now...
Fun Run & Walk
8 to 10 a.m.
A 10K Fun Run and 5K Run/Walk kicks off the day of family fun at the Raspberry Festival. Beginning at 8 a.m. in front of
Museum at St. Gertrude, the course follows an out-and-back route
on a quiet, paved country road. The stretch offers views of the Seven
Devils mountains, Salmon River breaks, Gospel-Hump Wilderness Area and
the Camas Prairie, making the Raspberry Festival Fun Run one of the
most scenic running/walking events in Idaho.
Water and refreshments are provided and showers are available at the
nearby Prairie High School gym. Registered runners and walkers receive
a commemorative T-shirt. Prizes are awarded in each race for the
following age categories: 10 and under, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70 and 71+.
All participants are also entered into a drawing. Register now...
