Holiday Craft Faire at Ashokan Center


Had enough of box stores and online shopping? The Ashokan Center’s 2nd annual Holiday Craft Faire, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, at 477 Beaverkill Road Olivebridge is the answer. The Ashokan Center’s performance hall will be transformed to showcase an incredible assortment of locally made crafts. Their wonderful elves (staff) will be ready to help in the Tin Shop (make an ornament), Broom Shop (make a wood-handled sorghum broom), Blacksmith Shop (make a fire poker, heart-shaped trivet, or plant hanger), and Discovery Room (make a natural holiday wreath). Arrive early to sign up for these hands-on activities. The Faire will also include a family photo booth in the Ashokan sleigh, live holiday musical offerings, and an array of tasty food for sale. Shop, eat, make, and be merry!

There will be a winter clothing drive requesting gently used hats, coats, gloves, and boots; delicious hot food and beverages for sale; and jolly seasonal music.

There is no cost to attend, and all craft and food sales benefit the Ashokan Center’s ongoing work to inspire learning and build community through shared experiences in nature, history, music, and art. Bring donations for the winter clothing drive, as many school kids who come to the Ashokan Center field trips are underprepared. Thanks for helping them!
