White Oak Fair coming
Tuesday, September 3, 2013 12:49 pm
The work of more than 75 craft artisans will be available for purchase as The White Oak Craft Fair returns for its 24th year on Sept. 14-15.
From 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 and Sunday, Sept. 15, the Arts Center of Cannon County will host the top craft artisans from throughout the region who will offer for sale their original textiles, jewelry, woodcarving, metalwork, pottery, photography, chairs, baskets, ironwork, stained glass and much more.
The fair takes place along the banks of the East Fork Stones River just down from the Arts Center in Woodbury.
In an age when mass production makes so many things widely available, the White Oak Crafts Fair celebrates the inspiration and skill of the individual maker as well as being an opportunity to appreciate uniqueness. This is an event, whose reputation has spread to attract new attendees from across the region as well as appealing, year after year, to regular visitors.
Although a high percentage of the participants in the show are typically perennial favorites, new exhibitors join the show each year, so there is always something new and fresh for visitors to look forward to.
Along with food booths, be sure and go by "The Blue Porch at The Arts Center" for a delicious home cooked meal. Admission to this event is free with a $3 donation for supervised parking to benefit The Woodbury Lions Club and The Arts Center of Cannon County.
