We were amazed at the creativity flowing throughout this one of a kind craft fair. The artisans bring such originality to this fun filled event. The families came out with the kids and the dogs and there was something for everyone to do. Great shopping, great food and a kids area with laughter that echoed from the center of the park. There were even hammocks to take a moment to enjoy the sounds of this happy place. Here are some highlights from the event.
Connor MacLeod and his sister Caitlin had a great day with their family!

Granola Mama’s Handmade is for those who believe we can create clean wholesome food that tastes great in fact this granola has the
ArtQuench Gold Star for “Best Tasting Granola!”
Granola Mama’s Vision
What do we mean by truly delicious? We mean that above all else, our granola tastes great! It’s our first priority. We believe that food tastes better when it is made with love. We believe that food is only as good as the quality of its ingredients. We know that ingredients that are organic, locally grown, whole or minimally processed taste better and are better for so many other reasons.
We are passionate about our belief that food is an accessible way to understand and appreciate different cultures. And not just foreign cultures, but your next door neighbors culture as well. It is our sincere intention to bring you flavor inspired by peoples and places near and far using granola which is familiar to a lot of people, as the palette. With this in mind, the possibilities are limitless!

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is another Gold Star Winner! ArtQuench calls this amazing tasting and creative flavored ice cream
“The Best all time original flavored ice cream in Southern California!”
We are absolutely devoted to making better ice creams and bringing people together. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning and keeps us up late at night. We believe that you can grow a business as a community of people, with artful attention to detail and the customer experience, and get continuously better at the same time. That REALLY great ice cream served perfectly in a sparkling and beautiful space, with attentive and in-the-moment service (we believe service is an art) brings people together and helps them connect. And that sometimes sparks fly. And that there should be more sparks flying, generally. We like to make people feel good.

Fez-o-rama LLC. is a unique small business that produces fine hand-made, embroidered velvet fezzes and caps, fez accessories and original art. We’re located in Southern California and all of our production is USA based. We have shipped worldwide and have our fezzes on the heads of many insanely happy clients in over a hundred countries. What makes us a truly unique company is not only what we make, but also the fact that we are artist owned and operated. Our designs are created and programmed in-house and the vast majority of production is done by those very same artists. From start to finish we put our focus on our creative expression. We are not just a design front for some factory. The same few people that created the patterns and design the embroideries also answer the emails, sew the fezzes, ship the boxes, design the website and attend the shows. This creative passion extends to our presence on the convention floor with our award-winning self-built custom designed booth and displays. We tend to eschew conventional presentations for a more hand-made, artisan style that better represents our product, our company and our design philosophy.The way we do things is just as important to us as what we do.
Meet two women with inspirational stories of how they came to create such beauty with ceramics.
“Wonderfully artistic with incredible design!”
Two years ago today, I went into the studio like any other day and went to blow off a little steam, try and make something slightly aesthetically pleasing, jabber on about nothing with my partner in crime, and just have some fun. When I started to work the previous week I had an idea but I did not think it would work or did not know how I would even go on about building this shape that I had in my head. I made a typical pinch pot and then….READ MORE
My mother’s father was a pilot. My father is a pilot. My Husband saw much of the world before he was 23. Travel is in my blood and all around me. I’ve been so fortunate to see some of the most amazing sights in the world. I knew these experiences fed my soul, but I had no idea how they would inform my artistic life…..READ MORE
A World of Wonder is what we found at the booth of artist
“At the center of every fairy tale lay a truth that gave the story its power.” – Susan Wiggs.
Hailing from Bulgaria, Dany Paragouteva’s work revolves around using her European heritage
and soulful appreciation of the power of fairy tales to bring people into a fantastical world of
the subtly surreal. Her aim with her art is to touch the viewer with a joyful emotional truth that
not only makes us ask ourselves ‘why not?’, but brings out the dreamer in us that only the world
of fantasy can inspire.
If you are looking for the next great fashion accessory then

We stopped and tasted the amazing all natural artisan beef jerky and had to take some home!
Handcrafted, Small Batch Beef Jerky
We founded Dried and True to make jerky that would wow people’s taste buds and change their perception of what beef jerky could taste like. Since 2012, we’ve been making each batch by hand without chemical preservatives, nitrates/nitrites, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial ingredients.
Was a huge hit with their wonderfully priced beautiful succulents.
We are a small grower and purveyor of succulents, air plants and houseplants located in Costa Mesa, CA. We strive on the fact we can offer great looking plants at low prices, and back them up with knowledge on how to care and succeed with your purchase. To us its not just a business, its a way of life with every sale becoming a teachable moment for the customer to understand their plant. We do events all over Southern California and attend local farmers markets as well, look us up or stop by one of our events and say hello!
