Arts & Drafts Festival

A Special Note From Festival Organizers:

We are looking forward to the First Arts & Drafts Festival, but we want you know 

that your wellbeing is our first concern and that we are in touch with state and local

officials and are working to make sure that this will be a safe and fun event for all. 

We expect the event will move forward as planned and that the Coronavirus outbreak

will be over within the next two months. If anything changes, however, we will let you

know and if the event is cancelled or postponed, we will, of course, honor your request 

for a full refund of your booth fee. In the meantime, be safe and stay well.
