The celebration features a juried crafts show featuring works by 250 vendors, food and drink, performances, a farmers’ market, a chefs’ demonstration tent, and activities for children.

The handcrafted wares include original work in glass, ceramics, metals, fiber, leather, wood, jewelry and fine art.
