Art and Crafts


Read the application carefully, print it out (please do not send back via email), and return with a check if you are interested in participating in our annual event. I have sent the Application in two formats in hopes that you will be able to access one of them.

This year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the humble, St.-John’s-Church-blueberry-pie beginnings of this festival. While there won’t be extraordinary events planned for this year, the Organizing Committee will be noting thankfulness for the work of so many Ashfield citizens over the 50 years and for the continuing contributions to the Ashfield Citizen and Community Scholarship Fund’s ability to support so many Ashfield people. We are also very appreciative of you, our artisans who continue to participate in this festival; some of you have “followers,” people who return each year to this festival to purchase more of your work, or at the least to say “hello!” I receive inquiries after each festival, asking for contact information with a vendor or two to purchase an item seen at our festival!

The big change affecting you this year concerns vendor parking. This committee can no longer provide free vendor parking in the lot on Baptist Corner Road just off Main Street. Vendors can continue to park there for a $10 per day fee. The big parking lot at the south end of Main Street is available as well with a similar fee structure as a contribution to the Scholarship Committee.

At the Ashfield Fall Festival you’ll find exhibitors of handmade crafts, including: jewelers, woodworkers, glass blowers, potters, yarn and fabric artists, basket makers, instrument makers, furniture makers, painters and more.
