The Sugarloaf Craft Festival returns to Gaithersburg today through Oct. 13 with 250 artists from around the country offering their one-of-a-kind handmade creations. The festival at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, 16 Chestnut Street, Gaithersburg will showcase fine contemporary crafts and affordable art. The jury-selected artists will personally show and sell their latest work at the festival in ceramics and pottery, jewelry, glass, leather, wood, metal, fashion, photography, fiber and fine art.
“The jurying process for the Festival is highly selective, and participants are chosen based on the quality of their work and the uniqueness of their items,” said Deann Verdier, President of Sugarloaf Craft Festival. “Just as important, the show offers something for everyone – and for every budget. Shoppers can buy $20 earrings or $200 earrings, a beautiful ceramic mug to give as a gift or an entire 12-person place setting to use at home.”
The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will be held Oct. 11 and 12 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. Adult admission is $8 when purchased online, $10 at the door, and free for children under 12. Admission is good for all three days of the festival. Free parking is available on site.
