Southern Vermont Art & Craft Festival
September 8, 9, & 10, 2023APPLY
Craftproducers and Starbird Events are thrilled to announce the return of the Southern Vermont Art & Craft Festival to its original home in Manchester, Vermont! It’s been a while since the great Hildene summer craft shows have happened. But now, suddenly, it’s back with a late summer date, September 8th through 10th. The Riley Rink Events Field has matured nicely, with manicured lawns used for baseball and soccer and concerts.
Situated between the mountains, the verdant lawns will provide a lovely setting for the 125 exhibitors, each one a tented boutique, offering a plethora of handmade goods: pottery, jewelry, clothing, art, graphics, leather, glass, metal, specialty foods, and Vermont wines and distilled spirits to taste and take home.
As with any Craftproducers show, the ambience will be enhanced with creative food fair, local beers on tap, and live music filling the air not to mention convenient onsite (free) parking.

JUNE 23, 24, & 25, 2023
We are unable to do this festival again this year because of inability to obtain Insurance for the event. We are communicating separately about providing refunds for those who are signed up. We are super bummed and apologize for any inconvenience.
After a 9 year run at the Saratoga Country Fairgrounds, where it was titled the Saratoga Balloon & BBQ Festival, this event is moving to the Columbia County Fairgrounds. We are also back to the traditional early summer date. The fairgrounds is closer to the Albany market and has more parking and better balloon flying conditions.
THIS IS A NON-JURIED SHOW, which means that, in addition to those who handmake the items they will be selling, we also welcome re-sellers and buy/sell exhibitors.
