Collingswood Crafts and Fine Arts Festival
|08/15/2015 - 08/16/2015|
|10:00 am - 5:00 pm|
More than 150 crafters and fine artists from throughout the country will offer their latest works at the 10th Annual Collingswood Crafts and Fine Arts Festival! Selected by a jury each year, these respected artisans will offer contemporary works of wood, clay, glass, metal and fiber for sale – the newest in exciting craft and fine art.
Ceramics for home or garden, original watercolors, oils, collage or fine photographs, heirloom toys or whimsical gifts that you have never seen before can all be found beneath the billowing white tents along Collingswood’s handsome, historic Haddon Avenue. You’ll find exquisite jewelry (fine and fashion), hand-woven clothing, leather belts and handbags, stained and blown glass, metal yard sculpture, turned wooden bowls, unique outfits for children and so much more.
Enjoy a meal while you shop: With more than a dozen fine restaurants to choose from, festival-goers can stop in to savor Italian specialties, sumptuous seafood, Asian-fusion delicacies, south-of-the-border platters, Indian dishes, gourmet sandwiches or the all-American burger or hot dog.
Café dining makes the show festive! Munch on treats at unique food tents as you stroll. Be sure to leave room for dessert: glazed almonds, kettle corn, artisan ice cream, a funnel cake or shaved Hawaiian ice. There will even be nostalgic soda dispensed in “tin cups” from a chuck wagon!
Live music, including smooth jazz, folk and pop favorites, will delight Festival guests throughout the downtown. Bring the kids, too! Family art activities include ceramic tile painting, sand art, face painting and many make-and-take crafts.
Excellent art buying opportunities will be offered at a silent auction tent of items donated by the Festival artists. Proceeds will benefit the charity selected for 2015 and auction winners will be notified each day.
