Why do we all love arts & crafts festivals? Could it be because it’s the perfect incentive for our own imagination? We love walking through the fair admiring all the talent and creativeness of the exhibitors. We collect artifacts designed by different craftsmen from every form of art, like pottery, acrylic and oil paintings, carpentry and jewelry. And with each festival we pray that somehow we could inherit a little of their inventiveness even if it’s by osmosis. This weekend, we’ll be wandering the 62nd annual Arts and Crafts Festival in Fairhope, AL.
Located in Historic Downtown Fairhope
March 16-18, 2018
10 am – 5 pm
Shuttles offered from Parking Lots at Corners of Hwy. 98 and Fairhope Avenue
A Parade of Over 230 Artists
Local Imagination Sampling at Daphne Antique Galleria
On your way into the festival, you’ll find a sampling of our local imagination at the Daphne Antique Galleria. We have antique dealers as well as talented furniture painters, carpenters with incredible workmanship and some of the most inventive DIYers you’ll ever see in one place. Be sure to stop in to celebrate our accomplishments with us.

She goes the extra mile to update the inside of the piece as well.
Dealer PON restored this old door into a genteel twin headboard. I love the added touch of hardware.

Incentive for Your Imagination
If you are dealer, ladder’s can be used for more than blankets.
Room dividers can be used to display quilts as seen in booth PAC.
