100+ Artisans

We are thrilled to gather such a talented group of artisans together for our 49th annual Labor Day Craft Fair!

A festival of crafts, art, live music, food, demos, door prizes, free kids activities and more!

Entertainment for All Ages:

We love kids! They get into the Craft Fair for free (12 and under) and we always have face painting and a special bounce house or slide! Children must be supervised, but the kids' zone is under the tent on the small hill (behind the “Man Cave”) and offers a nice break for the adults in tow.

Art Demonstrations:

Many of our artists do demos in their booths. Others come to the first row under the big tent to do demonstrations at specific times throughout the weekend. Please click here to see the schedule.

Food Court:

As you would expect ... festive fare. A variety of foods from hamburgers to vegetarian fare and, of course, irresistible sweet stuff!  Take a break from shopping and have lunch. Kid's favorites are available. There are great "Made in Vermont" beverage and food tasting opportunities throughout the craft fair to enjoy as well.

Personal Shopping Service:

Get a jump on holiday shopping. We’ve got the ideas and plenty of unique gifts. Whether you need to buy gifts for babies, birthdays, weddings or your boss, a personal shopper is available to offer suggestions and help you select a gift.  Ask for Laura at the entrance and be prepared to discuss your budget and gift giving need.


Sorry, we love them too, but  NO pets are allowed at this event.

Please do not leave your pets in your car.  This event is typically too hot.


Mad River Massage will again be available for Seated Massage at the right of the entrance to the big tent. A % of their proceeds are donated to the Valley Players and a 10 minute massage only costs $10! Longer massages are available too. 

Experience the ultimate in massage.

Handicap Accessible:

We offer handicap parking close to the entrance to the fair and a handicap port-o-let (when facing the big tent all the port-o-lets are on the right side).

The aisles are wide enough for wheelchairs and walkers so please join us!
