If you’re looking to have fun and get up close with a talented group of artists, then the Garden State is the place to be this March! Sugarloaf Crafts Festival arrives at Somerset, NJ’s Garden State Exhibit Center March 24 for a weekend featuring more than 250 emerging and established artists and craftspeople from around the nation.

Spring is a time of hope and inspiration, and you’ll find plenty of both in this bustling artistic community. Sugarloaf Craft Festivals’ independent artisans are carefully curated and juried to ensure their handmade work meets the highest standards in creativity, quality and design. A wide variety of mediums are represented, with something for every passion and budget. Each festival offers the best in fine paintings, photography, leather accessories, jewelry, metal and glass sculpture, designer clothing and more. No matter what catches your eye, its creator will be there in person to tell you the story behind it, adding even more to your newest treasure.

If you’ve ever wanted to see metal spinning, pottery and other art in action, then you’re in luck with our amazing live art demonstrations and workshops, featuring master craftspeople along with local artisans. Enjoy the dulcet tunes of live jazz music while you shop, or can take a break with family-friendly entertainment. When you get hungry after a full day on the festival floor, head over to our specialty food vendors to find something new and exciting for your palate. You can also stock up on delicious and hard-to-find items such as gourmet truffles, frozen jams, hand-blended teas and fruit-infused wines.
