Respected craft fair returns to Maryland for the holidays

November 9, 2013 by  

Residents of Glen Burnie and other communities in the Baltimore area are invited to attend a large-scale artisan showcasing in Gaithersburg.

In approximately two weeks’ time, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will be making its winter appearance at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. The demand for digital business card printing services may be on the rise as the vendors who have agreed to participate in this event prepare to interact with new and returning customers.

More than 400 artists and craftsmen from across the United States have been selected to sell their handmade items at the fair. Goods available for purchase will include jewelry, glass art, wood carvings, furniture, and photography. Given the time of year, a number of artists are sure to be selling holiday-themed gifts.

The festival will feature live musical performances from Don Thomas, Stan and Leeanne, and Ngu Mbandi. Children will enjoy puppet shows and storytelling from Middle Earth Studios.

Attendees will also be able to watch craft-making demonstrations and sample a variety of gourmet foods.

The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will begin on Friday, November 22 and continue through Sunday, November 24. It will run from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on the Friday and Saturday and from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm on the Sunday.

Admission for adults will cost $10 at the gates and $8 online. One ticket will be valid for the duration of the festival, and children under 12 years of age will receive free entrance.

The fairgrounds are located at 16 Chestnut Street. There will be no charge for parking.
