NEWBURY, New Hampshire — The 81st annual League of New Hampshire Craftsmen's Fair kicks off this weekend with works from hundreds of artists and craftsmen.

The fair runs from Saturday through August 10 at the Mount Sunapee resort in Newbury.

Since 1932, the league has promoted and sold the works of local artists and craftsmen to buyers around the world. It grew as a way to help generate income for people hard hit by the Great Depression. The first fair was in 1932 in the Crawford House barn in Crawford Notch and took in $2,698. It was such a success, it became an annual event.

Beyond sales, there are also daily craft demonstrations and activities for the kids.
