This weekend's craft fairs offer a medley of crafts to grab your interest from an entertainment/fun run/craft fair bonanza in Georgia and eco-friendly crafts in Missouri to quilts and more in California.
While we can't write about every craft fair and marketplace happening across the country (or the world), we do like to highlight a handful of notable ones each week. If you'd like more people to know about your craft show or event, list it on our Craft Map and we'll gladly consider it for coverage. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
19th Annual Sugarloaf Crafts Festival
See what New Jersey has to offer (besides the Boss and, uh, Snooki) with the 250 vendors at this craft festival in Somerset. Expect a bevy of expert craft demonstrations and kid-friendly entertainment.
This annual event has a little bit of everything, from crafts to entertainment. You can also strap on your sneakers for the 5k fun run or throw on your very best for the beauty pageant.
American Craft Council Show
Oh hey, Hotlanta! Over 225 crafters are coming to town in categories such as Handmade under $100, Green Crafts and bride-to-be. Tickets cost $13 for one day or $20 for all three. Also, for those of us more excited about the under $100 category, tickets cost $5 on Friday after 5 p.m.
Spring Fling Craft and Vendor Show
Visit the Spring Fling to browse about 30 vendors with jewelry, ceramics, food and more. Shoppers can also participate in an auction for a grand prize valued at $125 with all proceeds going to the Painesville Forbes House and Humane Society.
