Sugarloaf Craft Festival

Tomorrow is the beginning of the 3 day Sugarloaf Crafts Festival. This show features over 250 artists and their wares in an all indoors environment. Many of the artists are on hand to talk about their work, too! I love meeting the artist behind the art. The glass exhibitor is one of my favorites.

A highlight of the show includes live craft demonstrations including papermaking and wheel-thrown pottery. According to the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival website, "Clay spins on the Weichmans’ well-worn potters wheel as they demonstrate how a simple lump of clay can be magically transformed into functional stoneware, including bowls, plates, tea pots, mugs, and vases." Amazing to see in action.

I’m also excited to hear musical entertainment from Stan and LeeAnne as they perform songs from The Cranberries and Peter Gabriel.

The family-friendly event has entertainment for children, too.  Children under 12 also have free admission. 

While you’re there, be sure to check out the specialty food options that are available.   At last year's festival, the candied almonds never even made it home; they were so good, that they had to be eaten immediately!  There are also plenty of traditional fair concessions.
