The 53rd Annual Artsfest will feature juried artisans and craftsmen from across the United States. Hand-crafted works will be available for sale in sixteen different categories, including ceramics, digital, drawing, fiber (decorative and wearable), furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and wood. The festival also features food vendors and live entertainment.
Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the festival layout will be modified to provide a larger space for social distancing that may include designated entry and exit points for greater control of foot traffic. We are confident this modified layout will provide vendors and customers a safe and successful experience that can be adapted to meet guidelines surrounding COVID-19. There will also be an online marketplace for attendees to view and purchase the artisan works should they not be able to attend the in-person event. Should there be further restrictions related to the virus that make it difficult or unsafe to hold a successful in-person festival, the event will be moved to a virtual experience.
