It's not your Grandmother's Craft Fair!
Picture yourself in the shadows of the beautiful Green Mountains listening to live music while you sip a craft cocktail! Then browse through a juried Fair of one of a kind pieces - unique gifts, keepsakes for your home, or special touches to add to your wardrobe. From small whimsical items for a few dollars to major artwork and jewelry, there is something for everyone.
The non-profit Valley Players community theater group purchased the highly successful Craft Fair in 1989, after the fair had been owned privately for 19 years. Staffed by a professional market manager and numerous volunteers, the fair provides support to maintain the Valley Players Theater on Main Street in Waitsfield. The group has been promoting cultural activities in the Mad River Valley for forty years, including production of plays and musicals, education in theatrical arts, and concerts and comedy shows.
