For some of us, we love a great craft fair. There is something about getting to meet the artists and filling our homes with amazing finds from all of the shows. We at Ledges Hotel love showcasing local work in our hotel as well as helping our guests find craft shows in the area. There are craft shows happening all over the Pocono Mountains throughout the year but one in particular that we, as well as many visitors enjoy, is the Peters Valley Craft Fair. The Peters Valley Craft Fair happens every fall and is beloved by many. Come see what the Peters Valley Craft Fair is all about and why you should be sure to come to it.
This year’s Peters Valley Craft Fair will take place September 26th and 27th at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, NJ which is just a quick trip from us at Ledges. This weekend craft fair will be open on Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm. Tickets for the Peters Valley Craft Fair are very reasonable and are $9 for each day or if you plan on going both days it’s $12. Children under 12 are free. Get a dollar off each price when you purchase them early through the Peters Valley Gallery.
Before we get into what you will find at the Peters Valley Craft Fair, let’s take a quick look into the gallery and school behind the craft fair. The Peters Valley School of Craft is a haven for artists of all kinds and ages. They have so many ways you can better yourself as an artist. They have classes and workshops for adults as well as children. Visiting the school can also be a real treat since there is usually a special event being held there. While you are there, be sure to visit the gallery. It is filled with beautiful pieces done by their artists in every style you can imagine as well as fantastic exhibitions. They have jewelry as well and gifts that are perfect for friends and loved ones.
Now let’s move on to the Peters Valley Craft Fair. This 2-day festival will encompass over 150 artists from not only the Pocono Mountains region but from all over the country. You will get to pursue artists in 5 different buildings. Be sure to chat with the ones that you like and ask questions. Also at the Peters Valley Craft Fair there will be live music for you to enjoy and lots of art demonstrations. Planning on coming to the Peters Valley Craft Fair with your kids? Give them the gift of art appreciation with encouraging them to participate in their art activities. Make notes of who you thought was the best artist and stick around for the awards ceremony to see who won. All in all, a weekend spent at the Peters Valley Craft Fair will be a fun one for the whole family.
