Pink Palace Crafts Fair - Audubon Park Community Association: One-Day or Two-Day Outings for Two to the Pink Palace Crafts Fair

Building a miniature ship inside a bottle is impressive, but not as impressive as forging a giant glass shell around the outside of an aircraft carrier. One-up ordinary artisans with today's Groupon to the Pink Palace Crafts Fair, presented by the Pink Palace Family of Museums. The event will take place October 6–9 at Audubon Park. Choose between the following options:

  • For $7, you get a pair of adult one-day passes (up to a $14 value).
  • For $12, you get a pair of two-day passes (a $24 value).

The Pink Palace Family of Museums stokes their visitors’ inner creative fires through a regular series of engaging programs and exhibitions offered with the city's museums, theaters, and nature centers. The 39th annual Pink Palace Crafts Fair gathers guests among arboreal friends in Audubon Park for three days of crafts-demonstrations series, shopping for unique works, and engaging live performers. Adults can interact with the menagerie of artistic experts by visiting stations for bygone talents, including weaving, soap making, blacksmithing, and sextant repair, while also browsing booths helmed by craftsmen selling items that include unique works of jewelry, blown glass, and hand-made pottery. Children ($3 if younger than 12) can also unleash their creativity with activities that include crafting avant-garde reinterpretations of the Magna Carta at spin-art stations, while enjoying the revelry of face painting and a trip to the fair’s Happy Times Farm petting zoo. After swaying to the cadence of live musicians and admiring the craft of practicing tradespersons, visitors can sample handmade delicacies such as kettle corn, fudge, and donuts.

Though the Pink Palace Crafts Fair offers specials online, this Groupon is the best deal available.

Pink Palace Family of Museums

The interactive exhibits and programs compiled by the Pink Palace Family of Museums reinforce a mission that has stayed constant for 80 years: to "inspire people to learn how history, science, technology, and nature shape the Mid-South." Attached to Clarence Saunders' mansion built in the 1920s, the museum's permanent exhibits take an eclectic approach to chronicling the past, revealing everything from ancient fossils to contemporary southern history. Inside, visitors can chart the history of Memphis from the early Spanish explorers through the Civil War or walk through a replica of Saunders' original Piggly Wiggly—the country’s first self-service grocery store, and even see a shrunken head. Global adventures are chronicled on a four-story screen at the CTI 3D Giant Theater theater.

Traveling to east Memphis, one can discern the natural side of the Pink Palace Family of Museums. Lichterman Nature Center encompasses 65 acres of lush gardens filled with native wildflowers, trees, and wildlife. The center combines self-guided nature walks with plant sales and educational activities to expose visitors to the natural world. Alternatively, the stately 25-room Mallory-Neely House, located in Victorian Village, features stenciled and hand painted ceilings, parquet flooring, and stained-glass windows purchased at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.
