A visit to a Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is a feast for the artistic spirit where you can admire the innovative creations of over 300 carefully curated artists. There are gifts for every age group and every interest so  you’re sure to find something that speaks directly to you and fits your budget.

The artists enjoy the opportunity for face to face conversations with customers to share the stories and inspiration behind their work. Our crafters come from the mid-Atlantic region, the northeast and other parts of the United States. They love hearing about your travel experiences and may even have some useful travel tips for when you’re visiting their area. This sense of community between the artists and shoppers is part of what makes the Sugarloaf Experience so special.

Several artists will be providing live demonstrations of their work throughout the festival. Take advantage of this chance to see artists in several mediums at work. See how they turn raw materials of wood, glass and straw into a top quality finished products ready to beautify your home or that of a loved one. When not perusing the crafts or watching a live demo, there is soothing handpan music by Janet Spahr and children’s entertainment by Middle Earth Studios.

Fun for Kids

Middle Earth Studio / interactive puppet show

Sugarloaf Craft Festivals are fun for the whole family. We provide Children’s Entertainment with Middle Earth Studios, a puppet show designed to enrich your child’s imagination through costume storytelling. Each puppet show engages as many as 90 children of all ages with props and costumes. Every participant becomes a part of the story as soon as the storyteller begins. The story is different every time, and every participant becomes a hero in some way.

Middle Earth Studios has delighted children at festivals and fairs around the country for years with their repertoire of enchanting fairytales and puppet shows. Now your children can enjoy Middle Earth Studios’ newest puppet show, featuring a 15-foot tall grandfather clock that’s really a time machine and the man or rather, the puppet, who invented it!
