Arts and Crafts Fair

Friday, September 16, 2022 10:00AM - Saturday, September 17, 2022 9:00PM

An Apple Festival favorite every year, the Arts & Crafts Fair brings a wide variety of crafters from across the region. Handmade items such as seasonal decorations, jewelry, and personal and household accessories are among the many items that will catch your eye.

Pat's BBQ will have their food truck parked in the middle of all the action with Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches and more. Stroll the outdoor booths Friday and Saturday and enjoy the old-fashioned flavor of the street fair atmosphere.

We will admit waitlisted vendors on a first come, first serve basis as space allows. If you would like to join the waitlist, please register and indicate on the form that, in the event we are not able accommodate you, if you would like your registration fee to be refunded or if you would like it be applied towards registration for the 2023 Arts & Crafts Fair.
