Haddonfield art festival to reach out to community

June 29, 2013 by  

The 21st annual Haddonfield Business District Crafts and Fine Art Festival will take place over two days this July. Having been named one of the best shows of its type by Sunshine Artist magazine, it has received numerous awards and attracts at least 100,000 visitors each year.

The festival is a juried one in which each artisan must apply to take part. The types of crafts and fine art usually presented at the festival include clay, leather, photography, pottery, clothing, jewelry, and sculptures. In addition, there is musical entertainment, family-friendly activities, and outdoor cafes.

This year, the festival will also be saluting the 300th birthday of the borough. The event is a great opportunity for local artists and crafters to make their names known in the community, while also allowing the public to recognize the amount of artistic talent there is in their community.

Artisans taking part in the festival rent a 10×10 space for $325, or $50 extra for a corner location. Many of them will come from areas slightly further afield, including nearby Cherry Hill, to participate. There is no doubt that many of them will also be working with local print companies to prepare for the event. Organizers will probably be using services such as flyer printing to advertise the show throughout the community as well.

The Crafts and Fine Art Festival will take place on the Kings Highway at Tanner St from July 13 to 14. For more information, call 215-843-4462.
