(Haddonfield, NJ)- Haddonfield Crafts and Fine Art Festival returns for its 24th year with more than 250 vendors showcasing the best of crafts and fine art from the region and beyond.
This two-day outdoor festival, which attracts crowds of more than 100,000 people, will be held Saturday, July 9 from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 10 from noon - 5 p.m. along Kings Highway between Washington Avenue and Haddon Avenue and along Tanner Street to Euclid Avenue.
Artisans will exhibit a wide range of arts and crafts, including ceramics, glass, jewelry, wood, fiber, metal, paper, drawings, paintings, photography, and wearable art. What is usually a busy main artery through the center of town is transformed into a festive corridor, alive with a panorama of artists’ tents, outdoor cafés, musicians and more.
Haddonfield Crafts and Fine Art Festival is a great place to find artists inspired to make old things new again, repurposing discarded items and vintage finds into truly unique items. Artists like JuNxtaposition, Creatively Obsessed, FUNiture, SheCre8s, veryDonna, High Strung Studios, Angular Art, and more bring new life to old typewriter keys, antique buttons, vintage silverware, guitar strings, casted-off furniture, and more.
This free event is easily accessible from area bridges or by taking the PATCO Speed
line to the heart of the shopping district. Parking in Haddonfield is also free
during the two-day festival.
