On Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29, 2014, Spring Green's main street will fill with 200 artists from all over the country to celebrate their 45th fair, 9 to 5 Saturday and 10 to 4 Sunday.
In a leisurely four block stroll you will find creative works to view, enjoy, and purchase. Fairgoers will find quality, variety, and uniqueness in a wide range of prices. Those interested in crafts can choose from leather, wheat weaving, clothing, rugs, soft sculptures, porcelain miniatures, dolls, teddy bears, wood toys, quilts, and much more!
For the arts buyer there are graphic designers, potters, photographers, glass makers, sculptors, painters, wood carvers, jewelers and fiber artists. Fair committees work year 'round to bring this prestigious and profitable fair to town.
Artists are selected by a jury from more than 500 entries. The primary criteria for scoring are: creativity, overall impact, and excellence of execution. Popular appeal, affordability and variety are also considered. Each year proceeds from the fair are granted to non-profit community needs. Aside from streets lined with artwork, there are special exhibits, musical entertainment, street performers and children's activities.
Don't leave the fair without sampling from the food/drink stands located along the fair route. All the food vendors are local groups who use their profits for their various good-will projects. Anyone interested in exhibiting in this juried fair may send for an application by writing to the Spring Green Arts and Crafts Fair, or by visiting their website and downloading the form. For those of you interested in viewing this popular fair, book your lodging reservations early!
