For some people around the Hudson Valley, being crafty is a passion! Revamping old into new, making something from scratch, or collecting the unique works of others; no matter what your passion is, if it has to do with arts & crafts there is no better place to be this Memorial Day Weekend than the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair! Taking place at the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz NY the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair will feature over 300 amazingly talented (and local!) artists and crafts people, live entertainment, great food, and much more! Here is Taft Street Realty's first of many profiles of the 2013 Ulster County NY Summer Festivals!
Fun Things for Children To Do
Young children have the opportunity to be a part of the fun too! Supervised activities, demonstrations, and other arts & craft projects allow the kids to participate and learn about what can be made by hand. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if many of the vendors at the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair ignited their passion and creativity at an early age. Parents should feel free to bring their kids to the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair, and children 12 years of age and under get in for free!
Unique Furniture and Architectural Crafts
If the words “rare, “original”, or “handcrafted” describe your style of furniture then definitely pass by these exhibits! You’ll find unusual offerings like handmade hammocks, funky jewelry boxes, and hand-forged fireplace tools. From sculptures, to ceramics, to lamp shades, if you can dream it you just may find it this Memorial Day Weekend at the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair!
Pet Wares, Personalized Gifts, and a Fair Sequel
Pet wares, pet fashion, and other pet friendly crafts will be available for the animal lovers (though no pets allowed at the fair please!) Personalized gifts for family and friends are one-of-a-kind treasures, and crafts people have turned such appeal into real and thriving businesses! Talents are born from the art of crafting and people get hooked & addicted to this type of stuff; it’s crazy! But what’s even crazier is missing the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair so mark your calendars! And as if one weekend isn’t enough, for those die hard crafters there will be another helping later in the year during Labor Day Weekend! Collectors, artists, and creative people of all types should pay a visit to the Woodstock | New Paltz Arts & Crafts Fair!
