Although December is still a month away, the staff and volunteers at the Cheyenne River Youth Project® in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, are already planning the flurry of activity that will descend on the Cokata Wiconi teen center and The Main youth center in the last weeks before Christmas. This week, they started making preparations for CRYP’s 3rd annual Christmas Artists’ Market, which will take place at 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, December 8 at Cokata Wiconi.
That means Cheyenne River artists, vendors, craftspeople and chefs should contact the youth project, which is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, to reserve spots.
“If you’re interested in selling your artwork, crafts or food at the artists’ market, we encourage you to call us at (605) 964-8200 and book your spot now, as space is limited,” said Tammy Eagle Hunter, CRYP’s youth programs director. “Booths are $15 apiece, and all booth fees benefit our youth programming and services. Vendors keep all their own proceeds.”
