Children younger than 12 get in free. Guests of this year’s festival can tap their toes to live musical entertainment including pianist Ngu Mbandi—while noshing on snacks such as old-fashioned candies and pretzels drizzled in sweet or spicy toppings (not included in this deal). A wide array of exhibited art includes fashionable apparel, handmade pottery and jewelry, wrought-iron sculptures, and photography.
Sugarloaf Crafts Festival
Attracting more than 170,000 art enthusiasts to its events in 2011, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival showcases original work from hundreds of artisans showcasing everything from handcrafted pottery, sculpture, and metalwork to jewelry, fashion, décor, and photography. Audiences can witness art being made live during educational demonstrations as artisans sculpt clay, whittle wood, forge metals, and imbue baskets with the power of speech. Hungry crafters can also sniff out specialty food items to sample or purchase while dancing across the sprawling venue to live music.
