St. Mark’s Art & Craft Fair 2016
1 Porter Road, East Longmeadow, MA 01028
Saturday, November 19th 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
St Mark’s Art & Craft Fair is a collaboration in which we bring together talent to showcase (and more importantly sell) their creations. In past years we have had a range of artists and crafters from hand knit sweaters to hand-turned wooden bowls and birdhouses, from homemade jam to ceramics and glassworks, and quite a range in between. The Art & Craft Fair also offers a bake sale and lunch items such as homemade soups, chili and loaded baked potato for sale, as well as a raffle of donated handmade items that benefits St. Mark’s Church.
St. Mark’s Art & Craft Fair runs from 9 am to 3 pm with set up times Friday 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday 7 a.m. – 8:58 a.m. The venue, located on a well-traveled road in East Longmeadow, offers two floors of 9+ spacious rooms and ample parking.
Advertising includes Newspaper and online ads, lawn signs, local flyers and a Facebook page, as well as participant’s own avenues.
St Mark’s Art & Craft Fair began in 2011 by a small group who have decades of art and craft experience behind us including all aspects of running successful shows as well as hands on in Arts and/or Crafts. We continue to learn and grow each year both from our own experience and from the feedback of participants and shoppers alike and have since doubled in size, while keeping our focus on quality, individuality and our shopper’s experience. We are very much looking forward to hosting our 6th annual fair in November. Trying to give Artisans as much say in the use of their own space, the only requirement right now is “handmade” with the occasional (committee approved) exception, such as the church raffle baskets and ever popular plant sale. We do require a description of your goods when applying to avoid an overabundance or competing art/craft and will limit as needed. This also helps when it comes to assigning spaces. We offer 3 different size spaces, if one is not enough you can combine the options to achieve the size space that will suit your needs, if less space is needed, we can accommodate that also. An application is attached. We look forward to seeing you and your work in November.
