Treasure Hunting in Style
The Fair will be held in the beautiful Regenstein Center. There will be tents over the Esplanade and the Rose Garden as well as vendors in Burnstein Hall, Runnells and Searle Courtyards, Nichols Hall, Joutras Gallery, and the Greenhouse Galleries.

New this year, shoppers may enjoy samples of organically grown wine from Bonterra Organic Vineyards.
