Locals to get their art fix with festival

July 19, 2012 by  

This weekend, the annual Summer Art and Craft Festival will be held at Deepwells Farms in St. James, New York, which is about an hour’s drive away from Hewlett. Previously held at the Flowerfield Fairgrounds, the festival begins on Saturday, July 21, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and runs Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

This is one of Long Island’s most spectacular summer festivals and features more than 75 artisans from the area, all housed under eloquent Camelot tents nestled among the towering pines on the grounds. This event is highly-regarded by the historical community and provides an escape from people’s busy lifestyles.

The festival will offer live musical entertainment to enjoy, plenty of children’s activities, and a large assortment of foods. During the festival’s hours, the mansion on the grounds will be open for the public to look through and is air-conditioned. Feature fine art, jewelry, pottery, and a number of other artisan’s handmade articles, there should be something for everyone.

Applications are still being accepted from exhibitors who wish to attend and share their wares and are available online. This is an outdoor event, so guests are reminded to dress appropriately and to bring sunscreen and seating.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to notify artisans and the public that this event is about to take place. Admission to this festival is $5 per adult, although children under 12 are admitted free. For additional information, please visit the Deepwells Farm Country Park website or call 631-563-8551.
