LOTS OF CHOICES — Shoppers were delighted with the many options available at the July show.
The Maggie Valley Labor Day Arts and Crafts Show returns Sept. 3–4 to the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds. In its 31st year the popularity continues to grow.
“Labor Day is a very popular time to visit the mountains,” said Teresa Smith, Maggie Chamber Executive Director. “It’s a great time to be outdoors and take your time browsing the plethora of handmade items.”
The show currently has about 120 vendors signed up to participate.
“The temperatures are perfect — pleasant during the day and cooler at night. This outdoor event gives our visitors and locals a pleasant way to spend the day shopping,” Smith said.
Seasonal items, yard art, paintings, photography, pottery, wooden bowls, furniture, jewelry, goat milk soaps and more will be featured at the event. “There really is something for everyone, from the most affordable handicrafts, to the more expensive museum quality items,” said Smith. “Even if you don’t plan on buying anything, it’s fun just to walk around and see the amazing variety of unique items – but rarely do you see anyone leaving without something in their hands.”
In addition to a wide selection of unique arts and crafts, there will a variety of mouth watering foods.
“We expect a record crowd to be in attendance this weekend,” said Smith. “The festival grounds provide a beautiful setting for this outdoor event,” said Smith. It is a great time to start thinking about those hard-to-buy-for at Christmas.
The event runs 9 a.m. –4 p.m. both days. There is no admission; donations appreciated. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Haywood County Animal Shelter. Parking is free. For more information contact the Maggie Valley Chamber at 828-926-1686 or visit maggievalley.org.
