The Manchester Fall Art & Craft Festival is taking the place of the formerly called Hildene Fall Arts Festival this year. The festival will take place in a new location as well, The Hunter Fairgrounds at Riley Rink in Manchester, VT. A more spacious location for a larger celebration!

The Manchester Fall Art and Craft Festival combines a market for handmade crafts, original art, live music, and an array of gourmet edible treats. Featuring artists from Vermont and beyond, this popular summer festival is a weekend destination for the whole family. “For many customers it’s an annual ritual to spend a day here, seeing their favorite exhibitors and meeting new ones, buying new works including gifts for the approaching holiday season,” said Tim Cianciola.

With over 180 Artists and Craftspeople, live music food tastings and more Tim Cianciola and his team at Craftproducers are emphasizing the excellent value people receive for the low price of admission. “A family of four can come to the show for around $20,” said Cianciola. “It’s a great day out for families, people interested in art, serious collectors, and people who love good food.”

The show comprises: exhibits from local, regional, and national artists and craftspeople. Visitors to the show can meet the artists in person and can browse several booths in one location. “This zany and talented bunch of artists and artisans have led interesting lives. Hear their stories, buy a piece of their work and take a bit of the artist’s personality with you. At its core, the festival is one of the top New England summer marketplaces for art and handmade crafts, and there’s plenty for people who are interested in more than the arts and crafts in the exhibitor’s tent.” said Cianciola.

The Manchester Fall and Craft Festival will take place September 28th-30th, from 10am-5pm at The Hunter Fairgrounds at Riley Rink, 410 Hunter Park Rd Manchester, VT.
