The 32nd annual Pocono State Craft Festival will be held August 25-26, 2018 at the Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, 347 Quiet Valley Road, Stroudsburg, PA. The event, cosponsored by the Pocono Arts Council and the Pocono Chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, celebrates the heritage, beauty and quality of Pennsylvania Crafts.
Since the first festival in 1986, the Pocono State Craft Festival has attracted the finest artists and craftspeople from across the United States and features traditional and contemporary handmade items. A destination for the discerning collector of quality art and fine crafts, patrons will find beautiful handcrafted items in pottery, jewelry, metal, stained glass, wood, baskets, leather, folk art, fine art, photography, soap, gourmet foods, and art-to-wear.
Craftsmen will travel from all parts of Pennsylvania as well as New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, West Virginia and North Carolina. Live demonstrations will captivate patrons and bring the creative process to life – from raw material to finished product. All craftsmen will be available to discuss their individual work and provide patrons with an opportunity to purchase unique, high quality crafts worthy of the most ardent admirer.
Festival goers will also enjoy the beautiful surroundings and history of the Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm. The farm buildings, animals and beautiful gardens will be open to give visitors a taste of a 19th century Pennsylvania German farm.
There will be live music from the Lost Ramblers on Saturday and a musical performance by the Music Theater Organization of East Stroudsburg University on Sunday, plus a variety of festival foods and baked goods from Quiet Valley. The entire family will enjoy a day in the country, strolling through the colorful tents and grounds at the farm.
