Artisans Get More with the “Sugarloaf Experience”

Sugarloaf Crafts Festival Comes to Central New Jersey This Weekend

Somerset, N.J. (October 17, 2016) – One of the largest and most respected fine arts and crafts shows in the country returns to central New Jersey this weekend. The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is at the Garden State Exhibition Center in Somerset, N.J. this Friday, October 21 to Sunday, October 23, combining expert artist selection with a vibrant festival atmosphere.

The three-day event is expected to draw more than 10,000 visitors looking for quality handmade artwork, clothing, furniture, specialty food and more. By bringing the best emerging and established artists and craftspeople in the country together under one roof, millions of dollars in sales and exposure are generated for these independent artisans. The NJ Sugarloaf Crafts Festival has even been previously featured on Bravo’s “Manzo’d With Children” and other major TV networks.

In addition to being able to sell their goods, exhibitors at the Sugarloaf Craft Festivals receive the full benefits of being part of a professionally managed show, including extensive targeted advertising, public relations, listings on the Sugarloaf web site and the welcoming spirit of the Sugarloaf family. Somerset exhibitors can even ask for the discounted “Sugarloaf rate” at the Holiday Inn Somerset, Comfort Inn Somerset and Courtyard by Marriott Somerset.

Since 1975, more than 100,000 independent artisans have become professionals with the help of Sugarloaf Craft, learning valuable entrepreneurial skills while gaining a new base of customers with an appreciation for maker-designed, handmade goods. Limited exhibitions slots are still available for Somerset and the rest of the Sugarloaf Fall 2016 Tour. Potential exhibitors can learn more or apply by visiting
