Sapphire Valley Craft Festival
by Mary Jane McCall
Sapphire Valley Resort kicks off its 2019 Craft Festival Season with its first show on June 22 and 23 from 10:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M. at the field adjacent to the Sapphire Valley Community Center and Recreation Center. Parking and admission are free.
These craft shows are an event not to be missed, as the activities include not only an exceptional craft show featuring the works of some of the area’s most talented craftsmen and artists, but also live music, food and entertainment for the whole family. It’s a perfect outing on a summer weekend.
Cashiers Highlands Humane Society will also be on hand for an adoption event so who knows, you might just find your perfect companion here, too. At the very least you’ll have the opportunity to pet some of the shelter’s cutest residents.
There is always a wide selection of arts and crafts of every imaginable kind – woodworking; fine handcrafted furniture; Christmas wreaths, ornaments and gifts; woven items; items in stone and clay; paintings; drawings; handcrafted knives; jewelry; candles; scarves and other textiles; hand blown glass; woodworking; pottery; soaps; food items and so much more. There’s a new treasure around every corner.
There’s something for everyone here and it’s a fun and relaxing way to get outside for some fresh mountain air while searching for that just right piece of the area’s culture for yourself, your home, or as a gift to share with your friends and family.
Mark the Sapphire Valley Arts and Crafts Festival on your calendar now – June 22 and 23. Please plan to join us for great food, mountain music, great shopping and a great time! For more information, call the Sapphire Valley Resorts at (828) 743-2251.
