Downtown Mount Shasta has turned into an Artistsan Street Fair that features local venders, thanks to the hard work of the Mount Shasta Chamber of Commerce staff and vision of their Board of Directors. There are many venders from outside the area selling crafts and food, but in the past few years the Chamber has made a special effort to invite the local talents and not for profit organizations.

Local artists doing demonstrations A Melo Place and  Noam  Zimin  with a solar powered potter’s wheel. Mt Shasta Martial Arts  Program  seem to have someone flipping around every time I walked by. Not for profits booths are offering information about chem trails, the Mt Shasta Ski Team and Siskiyou Land Trust  the Mt Shasta Nordic Center  and Meals on Wheels are selling handmade items to raise funds for their cause. The Friends of the Siskiyou Ice Rink are asking folks to fill out an on-line survey, the Mount Shasta Beautification Committee is selling raffle tickets and plants to raise money for new banners for the light posts throughout town. Shasta Taiko  has a booth where you can learn more about the upcoming Shasta Yama, world renown Taiko festival or sign up for lessons.
