Berthoud United Methodist Craft and Food Fair


Ninth Street and Lake Avenue, Berthoud

October 8, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.


One of Berthoud most anticipated events is coming this weekend. The United Methodist Women’s Craft and Food Fair is in its 36th year and is offering a new look with new vendors. The fair takes place in the church fellowship hall with lunch available from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.

The fair is famous for its noodles and angle food cakes as well as the craft vendors. The church volunteers under the watchful eye of Priscilla Lebsack have been making noodles for the past four weekends. The noodles sell for $5 per half-pound bag and the angel food, , cakes, chocolate and vanilla,  are $9 each. Even though the volunteers have bagged over 150 pounds of noodles, the supply probably won’t last long. If history is any indication, only the early shoppers will get their noodles and cakes.

The list of vendors for this year includes many new faces. This is a juried show with 16 vendors chosen to participate. There will be no duplication of items. This promises to be an exciting event.
