For decades the Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club’s annual Arts and Crafts Fair has attracted thousands of visitors.

It should be no different this year. The 32nd annual event runs March 20-21 at the Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle. The fair should attract several thousand visitors and islands, the club’s Roger Grogman said.

“We can’t help but get excited,” he said. “This is important to us, important to the island.”

The event last year raised some $40,000, Grogman said, proceeds Lions use for health fairs, equipment and outreach programs. There’s a suggested $5 fee to enter the grounds.

The 2015 Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club’s 32nd annual Arts and Crafts Fair will take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21. The fair, which includes more than 100 artists and crafts people from across the U.S. will be on the grounds and inside the Sanibel Community House on Periwinkle. Parking for the event is free and available across the street and at other nearby locations.

The Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club Arts and Crafts Fair is a long-standing island event that attracts talented artists and crafts people to this juried event each year. Admission for the public is a $5 donation. Children under 12 are free and parking is free. Food and refreshments will be available.

The fair also includes more than 100 silent auction and raffle items and exciting Raffle items with many outstanding artworks and sculptures in addition to services, restaurant certificates and vacations. The opportunities to win in the raffle.
