Sugarloaf Crafts Festival
Attracting more than 200,000 art enthusiasts to its events each year, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival showcases original work from hundreds of artisans—everything from handcrafted pottery, sculpture, and metalwork to jewelry, fashion, decor, and photography. Audiences can witness art being made live during educational demos as artisans sculpt clay, whittle wood, forge metals, and imbue baskets with the power of speech. Hungry craft-lovers can also sniff out specialty food items to sample or purchase while dancing across the sprawling venue to live music.
