Art and Craft Festival Returns to Manchester in New Venue
Southern Vermont’s largest juried Art & Craft Festival will take place at the Practice Tee, located north of Manchester on Route 7A, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 3 to 5. This is the original Hildene Show. The Festival, along with other events, will kick off American Craft Week in Vermont. Handcrafted pottery, hand blown glass, one-of-a-kind jewelry, colorful hand-woven scarves, striking photography, original drawings, paintings, sculpture and other upscale collectibles will be showcased by 150 artists and artisans under beautiful, heated Camelot tents from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, rain or shine.
The event is also a great chance to explore a variety of the best culinary products Vermont has to offer: a large selection of Vermont craft beers, cheeses and sausages will be available to sample, and local restaurants and food trucks will provide a varied menu for enjoying while listening to live entertainment. Admission is $10 for adults. Kids are free. No pets are allowed. For more information, visit craftproducers.com or call 802-362-2100.
