For 2019, the Festival’s 14th year, Collingswood will proudly present more than 150 craft and fine artists who have been selected by a jury for the quality and variety of their latest work. These artists will be on site at their booths to discuss their new pieces and share their passion for creating them.
What artwork will you see? Contemporary designs in wood, glass, clay, metal and fiber. Whether you are looking for a piece of hand-woven clothing for yourself or a unique children’s design, a perfect piece of stained or blown glass or some whimsical metal sculptures for your garden - the Collingswood Craft & Fine Art Festival will provide something unique and beautiful.
If you are intrigued by original watercolor, pastel, collage or oil paintings or if you appreciate fine photographs that capture the beauty in nature or cities, you will appreciate the festival’s fine artists and photographers.
Those who admire the craftsmanship in turned wood and hand-carved figures or handmade musical instruments embellished with wood-burned designs will be excited to find them at the Collingswood Festival. Artisans of functional and decorative furniture or colorful gourd and wooden bird houses will display their clever designs for home or garden. See clay in many forms: functional pottery and one-of-a-kind display pieces await the Festival shopper.
Jewelry, both fine and fashion, is a highlight of the Collingswood Festival! Pearls and gems, vintage treasures, ceramic, precious metals, beads, shells, leather and even guitar strings are woven into the artists’ imaginative creations. One can never have too many pairs of earrings, unique bracelets, or stunning necklaces- and handcrafting ensures each piece will be creative and unusual.
If you have a special friend or family member who requires a really unique gift-the Collingswood Crafts and Fine Art Festival artists will surely fill that niche.
What else makes the Festival special? As you stroll the billowing tents along historic and happening Haddon Avenue, try dining al fresco on a delicious shaved ice tropical sundae, world-renowned cheesesteak or “classic” treats like kettle corn, funnel cake, hot dogs or a smoothie. Relax and dine at one of Collingswood’s 20+ popular BYOB restaurants which offer cuisine from all over the world.
Live festival music includes sounds of smooth and New Orleans jazz and pop and folk favorites played by groups throughout the downtown. Bring the whole family to the Festival and try your hand at the family art activities sponsored by Collingswood’s Parke Bank: make a canvas painting, decorate a ceramic tile or create a sand art piece to take home. A talented face-painter and henna artist and a caricaturist add to the Festival fun!
A charity “craft and fine art raffle” tent will offer wonderful items donated by Festival artists which will give everyone a “chance” each day at bringing home something wonderful while also doing something wonderful to benefit a worthy cause.
Forget the shore on August 17 & 18, 2019 - or stop on your way down! The Collingswood Crafts and Fine Art Festival is “Where You’ll Want To Be” for arts and entertainment this summer.
