Attracting more than 175,000 art enthusiasts to its events in 2010, Sugarloaf Craftd Festival showcases original work from more than 250 artisans, from handcrafted pottery, sculpture, and glass to jewelry, fashion, décor, and photography. Audiences can also witness art being made live during meticulous demonstrations by skilled sculptors, woodworkers, and more. Guests of this year’s festival can flood their brain doors with live music entertainment from quarter-note-wielding artists, including acoustic guitarist Don Thomas and key-charming pianist Ngu Mbandi. Kid-size imaginations flourish while at costume storytelling, as parents take their turns sampling and shopping for specialty foods, including German-style almonds, pumpkin butter, and a variety of artisanal pretzels.
Though Sugarloaf Crafts Festival sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
