The Mountain Mamas have been a pillar to the Stanley community since 1976. These amazing Mamas are not only a social network for the women of the valley, they raise funds and support local organizations. They provide college or post-high school scholarships each year to anyone who attended the Stanley School. They support the area sports, winter activities, Stanley Library, Meditation Chapel, Salmon River Clinic, EMTs, Stanley Museum and more.

The major fund raiser is their annual Sawtooth Mountain Mamas Arts and Crafts Fair.

Local musicians will entertain fair-goers all weekend long. Wear your dancing shoes!
Saturday and Sunday Morning: Dewey, Pickette and Howe
Saturday Afternoon: Jaz
Sunday Afternoon: Dick Polley

Music to our ears – Mountain Mama Deanna Sue has been known to softly sing the chorus of ‘Paradise’ with Dewey, Pickette and Howe. Will she grace the stage again this year?

Word of mouth among the vendors has resulted in over 140 booths at the Fair. And it’s not too late to showcase your talent as a vendor and become a part of this fun event in Stanley.

While some may consider the Mountain Mamas to be Superwomen, the Fair is a larger undertaking than they can do alone. What would make the Fair a better experience for you? Volunteering at the Fair!

Please contact the Sawtooth Mountain Mamas if you would like to be a vendor or volunteer.

Don’t miss this opportunity to buy direct from the artists and to help raise funds for the Sawtooth Mountain Mamas so they can continue supporting the Stanley community.

We invite you to come to the Fair and stay for the weekend!

Sleep.  Eat.  Do.

When you see these Mountain Mamas, please give them a round of applause for all that they do in the Stanley community.
