What better way to enjoy the crisp autumn air than visiting an arts and crafts festival at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg, MD! From Friday, October 20 through Sunday, October 22, you have the opportunity to meet hundreds of professional artists and find out how they do what they do. Gifts bought here are truly one of a kind!

Sugarloaf Crafts Festivals are among the top tier arts festivals in the country with only the most outstanding artists in each category. You’ll be astonished at the charming ways they have reimagined shoes, home decor items, clothing, jewelry and more. This is a great opportunity to scout out extra special holiday gifts while also supporting American artists.

Watch the artists at work at any of the on-site demonstrations throughout the festival. Observe a wood carver or basketweaver crafting their products using the same equipment and techniques used by crafters hundreds of years ago. The end result is a quality product that will last much longer than items from a big box store!

Don’t miss Sugarloaf’s Festival of Foods, where you’ll sample delicious chocolates, jams, dips, wine and bread. Jazz up your holiday gatherings with these locally produced gourmet treats. And of course, there are special chewing bones and other goodies you can take home for Fido. When you’re ready for a solid meal, you’ll find fabulous concession stands with sweet and savory crepes, burgers and falafel sandwiches, quesadillas, nachos, coffee and more.

If you’ve got young ones with you, take them to the castle where Middle Earth Studios invites young and old to create their own fairy tale. Don a cape and grab a sword to protect the kingdom!

Where else can you find such a smorgasbord of visual and culinary treats!?

Tickets are available online or at the entrance and each ticket is good for the entire weekend. Take advantage of this enriching event while you can!
