    The Zonta Club of Glens Falls would like to invite the public to the 59th Annual Zonta Country Faire on Saturday, June 15, 2019 and Sunday, June 16, 2019 in the parking lot of the Traveler’s Building at 333 Glen Street, downtown Glens Falls. The event is free to the public.
     
    This year we welcome over 70 vendors including artwork, spices, jewelry, food trucks, natural body products, clothing, pet bandanas, wood crafted items, home décor, other unique handcrafted items, and more!
     
    The Zonta Country Faire is the largest fundraiser for the Zonta Club Foundation of Glens Falls NY Inc, a 501c3 organization that supports our Club.  We actively seek to empower women in our local community by funding scholarships, awards, and grants to organizations that support our mission such as Catholic Charities Domestic Violence Project, Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York, the “Uniquely You Boutique” at Glens Falls Hospital, Wait House, Wiawaka, and more.
     
    The Glens Falls Zonta Club has been serving this community since 1924, and is a member of Zonta International which was founded in 1919 and is celebrating its Centennial Anniversary this year.
     
    The Zonta Country Faire is held rain or shine, Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 10am-5pm and Sunday, June 16, 2019 from 10am-4pm. 
     
    Please note: We know you will want to spend lots of time checking out all the amazing vendors at the Country Faire!  Due to the fact that the event is on pavement which can reach over 130 degrees Fahrenheit in summer sun and can cause severe burns on paws, we respectfully ask that dogs be left at home for their own safety.
