The second annual Easton Fall Craft Fair will take place Saturday, October 7 on the grounds of Trinity Cathedral in downtown Easton. The event is free and open to the public. There will be 35 vendors selling handmade crafts, plus a raffle with unique prizes, a bake sale and hot dog stand.
“This year’s fair will be bigger and better this year,” said Leslie Walker, the event coordinator. “Vendors will be showing a wide variety of handmade work from all across Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Pennsylvania. It should be a great place to get a head start on your holiday shopping.”
The fair supports two good causes — promoting handmade regional artwork and a new community outreach program called the Easton English School at Trinity. The English School launched last October, offering free classes to English language learners every Wednesday at Miller Hall, the building behind the cathedral.
The Oct. 7 craft fair will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 315 Goldsborough St. in Easton. Many of the vendors are local, based on the Eastern Shore. They will be selling jewelry, woodwork, basketry, glassware, 3D art, soaps, ceramics, needlepoint, quilts, toys, custom-painted LP art, stained glass and much more. Booths will be located both inside Miller Hall and outside throughout the cathedral grounds.
Fairgoers will be able to buy raffle tickets for a chance at two prizes — a beautiful handmade quilt and a large, unique Charcuterie board, custom made from the historic Maryland Wye Oak Tree by McMartin & Beggins of Wittman. Whoever wins the board also will receive a free class in how to arrange and present charcuterie food, donated and led by Vines & Vibes Restaurant in Easton.
In the event of rain, the fair will be rescheduled for Saturday, October 14.
