Keep your New Year’s resolution to add more art to your life! The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival returns to the Metro DC area beginning January 27 at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va. Join us for an unforgettable weekend at one of the top craft shows in the United States.

More than 250 independent artisans from the local and national artistic communities will be on hand to inspire with their handmade creations and designs. Sugarloaf Craft Festivals are known for bringing artists and craftspeople face-to-face with collectors and enthusiasts. Each exhibitor can be found on the festival floor talking about their craft, telling stories and offering advice to aspiring artists.

Sugarloaf Craft Festivals carefully selects each artist from hundreds applicants, ensuring you’ll see the most beautiful and original items possible when you walk through the doors. You’ll find amazing things to add to your home décor and start the New Year off right, including custom furniture, fine paintings, pottery, metal sculpture and glasswork. You can also give your personal style a new look with designer clothes, hats, jewelry and other accessories. Stunning craftwork is available for any taste or budget.

Many artisans and even master craftspeople are at every Sugarloaf Craft Festival to give demonstrations and workshops. You can see pottery and metal spinning, glass blowing and more in action. There are also a number of specialty food vendors where you can either get a delectable artisan meal or stock up on gourmet goodies. With live music to enjoy and a costume puppet theatre for the kids, the Dulles Expo Center will be home to a festival in every sense of the word.

Sugarloaf has been delighting collectors and launching artist’s entrepreneurial careers for more than 40 years, and now is the time to experience the magic. Discount advance and group tickets are available online and are good for all three days. You can also check artist listings, get directions to the festival, or find out how to get the “Sugarloaf rate” at nearby hotels.
