Downtown Camas Provides Historic Setting For Vintage Faire

Art, Antiques, and Contemporary Crafts Featured At Annual Camas Event


Vintage Faire


Camas WA has a rich historical presence dating back to 1883 when it was established as a bustling mill town for Henry Pittock, the owner of the Oregonian newspaper.  Today, downtown has a vibrant atmosphere where we love shopping for vintage antiques, whimsical art, or contemporary handmade crafts.  It is the perfect backdrop for next Saturday's 7th Annual Vintage & Art Faire that provides a unique venue for all three. 



Vintage Faire


Lining the streets of downtown on August 28th, the Faire features local artists, antique vendors, and craftsmen displaying their art, hand made gifts and vintage pieces. Some 60+ vintage and antique dealers, and local art vendors will line the streets to show their wares from 9am to 4 pm. 

Vintage and crafts offerings include a wide variety of indoor and outdoor furniture, home and garden accessories as well as clothing and jewelry.  Art offerings feature paintings, woodwork, metal, pottery, glass, fiber, recycled art, and more.


Vintage Faire


The Faire is located at 4th Avenue and Birch St, near Camas Antiques.  Start there and make a day of it with live music, food, and the friendly vibe of historic Camas. Stroll the streets, visit the booths, and stop in at one of the many shops or restaurants along the way. 



Plan to go - you may find us there enjoying the timeless classics of antiques, art, and handmade crafts.

Good morning, Debb -- as I read this post, it's very apparent that the words you have chosen represent why you love Camas WA.  The charm, the appeal and the ambiance combines to create why it is why you call it home.

What a delightful event.....The Faire is something I would truly enjoy.  I spent so much time at this type of event when I lived in NYC.....they ran all year long all over the city and I loved them.

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday at the end of the summer.  The antiques look just lovely Debb and I too love an antique and craft fair and combined with Camas charm, what could be better.  Time to spend some money!

Good Friday morning Camas Realtor Debb Janes -

Oh I'd love to enjoy walking around and checking out all that this cool event will offer.  John would rather sit in the shade and keep texting me we don't need it, put it down, step away.  HA!

Cute bike, but it would be a little rough on the bumps.  Hope the Camas downtown Antiques Fair is well attended
