"One of California's pre-eminent art fairs"- San Jose Mercury News
The Kings Mountain Art Fair (KMAF) is a three-day event held annually Labor Day Weekend. The primary focus of the event is the juried exhibition of gallery quality fine arts and crafts, giving our customers the rare opportunity to meet, interact with, view the works of, and purchase art from the individuals who have created it.
Every year, we honor the local art scene with the Mountain Artists section of the fair. This special part of the fair showcases local talent, ranging from the professional fine artist to the hobby craftsperson.

Meet The Firefighters
The Kings Mountain Art Fair is the primary means of financial support for our local volunteer fire brigade, our community's first line of defense against fires, natural disasters, accidents and other emergencies.
If you prefer, you may send a check payable to the Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade to:
Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade, Inc.
13889 Skyline Blvd.
Woodside, CA 94062
Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Department (KMFD) responds to fire and medical emergencies along the Skyline corridor between Highways 92 and 84, and the areas accessed from Skyline Blvd. As the KMFD is an all-risk fire department, the volunteers are trained for the same emergency services as provided by paid fire departments in the county. Some of these services include structure fires, wildland fires, vehicle fires, rope rescues, and hazardous materials spills. Because KMFD fire fighters receive the same training as paid firefighters, the KMFD responds to mutual aid requests throughout the county. They respond to over 300 emergency calls per year.
Kings Mountain Elementary School
The Kings Mountain Art Fair is an important means of financial support for the Kings Mountain Elementary School, the smallest school in the Cabrillo Unified School District and the smallest public school in San Mateo County. Kings Mountain Elementary School offers a unique alternative for mountain and Coastside families. It has three combination classrooms, serving approximately 70 students from kindergarten through fifth grade and is a California Distinguished School.
Please donate to Venture Free, our after school program.
The Venture Free Foundation facilitates the after school program at KM Elementary School. With a focus on FUN and the great outdoors, we hope to help raise the next generation to be conscientious stewards of the environment.
About the Art Fair
Started in 1963, the Kings Mountain Art Fair is an annual event, held every Labor Day weekend.
Known for its stunning location among the redwoods and for its unique and varied artists (selected by jury), the Kings Mountain Art Fair celebrates over 50 years of art and ambiance.
All proceeds from the Fair are used to support the Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade (purchase vehicles, supplies and equipment), the Community Center building (repairs, utilities, and insurance), special programs for area youngsters and students at our public school, the publication of the community's newsletter, and to cover the Fair's expenses. KMAF is self-supporting. No public tax dollars or grants are involved. There are no "corporate" sponsors. All Art Fair workers volunteer their time.
