25th Anniversary
Alternative Gifts Christmas Fair
Sunday, November 22, 2015   ~   10am to 4pm
Lincoln Park Barn, 12th & North Ave., Grand Junction


Celebrating 25 Years of Giving in the Grand Valley…
This year 22 local and 30 national and international non-profit organizations will be represented at the Fair; sharing information about the direct services they provide to the communities they serve.
Shoppers who donate to these organizations receive holiday cards that can be given to family and friends letting them know of the thoughtful gift made in their honor.
Join us for music, cookies and coffee while you shop around, enjoy the project displays, and learn about the amazing work these organizations are doing.  
Handmade jewelry made by “Lost Boys from Sudan” will be available at the Fair as well as Café Justo Fair Trade Coffee to benefit the Sheepherder Project. Also, Grand Valley Peace & Justice will be selling Fair Trade cocoa, tea and chocolate bars.
This year, local non-profits have decorated Christmas trees unique to their organizations for silent auction at the Fair. Drop by the Fair to see these amazing trees. Perhaps you or your business would like to support your favorite non-profit organization by bidding on their tree – then you can display your tree in your office lobbies or shop windows during the holiday season! Bidding takes place the day of the Fair! Check out our Facebook page to see Auction Trees before the event!
Those unable to attend the Fair can still purchase Alternative Gifts through December 18th. Contact Grand Valley Peace & Justice at (970) 243-0136 or visit us on-line at
The Alternative Gifts Christmas Fair is a project of Grand Valley Peace & Justice and Alternative Gifts International.
