More than 175 juried crafters and fine artists from throughout the country will offer their latest works at the 12th Annual Collingswood Crafts and Fine Arts Festival! Selected 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.
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. Ceramics for home or garden, handcrafted furniture, original watercolor paintings, oils, collage or fine photographs, heirloom toys or whimsical gifts that you have never seen before will all be found beneath the billowing white tents along Collingswood’s handsome, historic Haddon Avenue.
Al fresco dining makes the show festive! Munch on treats at unique food tents as you stroll. Be sure to save 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!
Or, stop in a café for a relaxing break. With more than a dozen fine restaurants to choose from, Festival-goers can savor Italian specialties, sumptuous seafood, Asian-fusion delicacies, south-of-the-border platters, Indian dishes, gourmet sandwiches or the all-American burger.
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 make-and-take crafts.
Excellent craft and art buying opportunities will be offered at the silent auction tent of items donated by Festival artists. Proceeds will benefit the charity selected for 2016 and auction winners will be notified each day.
So…forget the shore! The 12th annual Collingswood Crafts & Fine Art Festival is “Where You’ll Want to Be” for THE art-filled event of Summer 2016!
