I liken this to the Catalina Wine Mixer featured in 'Step Brothers,' because it's a pretty big deal. Whether you're a crafter or just a shopper, get ready.

For over 40 years, these folks have been putting on these festivals of crafts, mingling and fun.

Loveland's Applewood Arts Fest will take place from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. and 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on November 23 and 24 respectively, and will be held at the First National Bank Exhibition Hall at The Ranch.

It's $7 to get in, but it's well worth it with over 130 artisans, live music, and lunch (along with wine & beer) available for price of entry. Sunday, they up the stakes: Santa will be on hand from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and they'll have two drawings for $100 in cash.

I'm telling you- it's a BIG deal. Expect a big crowd; they make it clear that you can't bring baby strollers in until after 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Also keep in mind, that if you just run out of time or energy on Saturday, your ticket will be good for Sunday, too.
