This year the 6th Annual Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will take place this weekend, Friday December 9th through Sunday December 11th at the Dulles Expo Center. This year’s festival will feature over 300 acclaimed artisans that take pleasure in showcasing all of their handmade contemporary crafts and fine arts. From decorative pottery, glass, jewelery, wood and metal to fashion, furniture, home accessories, photography and fine art. In addition to nationally known artists, the festival will also introduce and showcase new and emerging artists. The festival will also include specialty gourmet foods (including soup mixes, English toffee, fresh breads, and so much more!) that will be available for sampling and purchasing. There’s something for everyone at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival!
Interactive demonstrations will be held through out the day by the artists. Many artists will show visitors how their art is created such as wheel thrown pottery, paper making, scarves and shawls, wood turning and more! Please visit the demonstration website for exact times for each demonstration.
You’ll also be delighted to know that the festival appeals to every age in the family! Live music will be provided during the festival that will include piano performances by Ngu Mbandi and new age flute performances by David Young. Children’s entertainment will also be provided by Middle Earth Studios’ popular puppet show featuring a 15-foot tall grandfather clock that’s really a time machine!
