The Tenino Area Chamber of Commerce, Tenino Arts and Tenino Creative District are holding the third annual Tenino Arts Spring Market on Friday, March 24 through Sunday, March 26. The event will be held each day at the Kodiak Room at 225 Sussex Ave. SW in Tenino.
There will be 32 artisan displays offering art and handcrafted items in more than 14 fields of creative expression. The venue will feature unique designs in pottery, metal, wood, glass, leather, textiles, painting and illustration, crystals and gems, wax, garden art, and recipes for sipping vinegars, baked treats and teas.
The market’s central cashier checkout stations will be operated by the Tenino Area Chamber of Commerce. The artisans will not be present in their vendor spaces, allowing shoppers more space to look through each booth at their leisure.
Live music will be performed by guitarist Ross Robinson on Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25. Mountain dulcimer duo Elaine and Dean Robinson will perform on Sunday, March 26.
The market is free to attend and there is free parking in downtown Tenino.
