One of the biggest and best craft fairs on the east coast comes to the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va. this December 8-10. There’s still time to find a perfect gift for the holiday season, and with more than 300 independent artisans in attendance, you’re sure to find something that you love and can afford.

The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival isn’t like other craft fairs in Virginia or the Metro DC area. Since 1975, Sugarloaf has brought together people of all ages, backgrounds and educational levels who share a common love of fine arts and crafts. You’ll be able to meet emerging local artists and established national artists alike and hear the stories behind their work and career. Each exhibitor goes through a careful selection process, resulting in only the best original handmade work makes it to the festival floor.

Our artists specialize in a variety of mediums, including jewelry, photography, fused glass and woodworking. You can also find more specialized interests such as sheepskin leather crafting, metal knives and even custom brooms. Get lost in a sea of heirloom and gemstone jewelry, or check out hand-painted scarves, fleece hats and other clothing accessories.

But there’s more to see at a Sugarloaf festival than just craft booths. Master craftspeople will be on hand all weekend to give demonstrations in stoneware pottery, copper spinning and more, offering a glimpse behind the scenes. While you’re browsing or watching a demonstration, you can enjoy the live musical stylings of the Jazz Lobsters and Audrey Betsy Welber. If you’re looking for a gift for the food lover you know, or just want to stock up your own pantry, our specialty food vendors carry everything from natural nut butters to frozen jams.
