Spring Fest, which is an annual arts and craft festival, is set for Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Village Green. Over 100 vendors will provide handmade crafts, artwork and antiques. Enjoy live music by Awesome Distraction.

The annual raffle is the artisan center’s only fundraiser. A wide variety handcrafted fine art items are made by member artisans, including wooden bowls, quilts, fabric art, fishing nets, stained glass, jewelry, paintings, pottery, tables and the famous Artisan Center Adirondack chair.  The raffle items have been on display at the artisan center since June 12.  All of the items will be at their booths during Spring Fest.

Twelve years ago, the center opened its doors and it has become a very successful learning and craft center. It is a tax-exempt non-profit organization supported by its members and this fundraiser. It is not supported by government grants.

Tickets are $1 each and are available at the center or from any member of the Artisan Learning Center. Tickets will also be sold during Spring Fest.  Ticket holders will put tickets in jars next to the art or craft item they select and want to win. Half of the items will be raffled Saturday afternoon and the remaining half Sunday afternoon.
