24th annual Vancleave Arts and Crafts Festival

Arts and crafts make perfect personalized gifts for Christmas and the Vancleave Arts and Crafts Fair hosted over 35 vendors with unique handmade items.

Friends of the Vancleave Public Library hosted their 24th annual Vancleave Arts and Crafts Fair. For those who need to get some Christmas shopping done, the creative and hand-made wreaths, mugs, and art were available at the fair.

Keeping social distancing in mind, they spaced out vendors and created areas for hand sanitizing stations.

The new venue outside at the Conrad Mallette Multi-Purpose Arena allowed enough space for visitors to feel safe and not overcrowded.

Arts and Crafts Director Betty Rylas is proud of the turnout and already has vendors reserved for next year. “We’re having our 24th annual Arts and Crafts Fair sponsored by the Vancleave Friends at the Library. We raise money with these events for their programs and we furnish refreshments for all of our programs and that’s what it’s all about. I’m happy. I’m so happy and we’re full. We’ve sold out every spot and I’ve had to make spots for people.”

The Vancleave Arts and Crafts Fair is already in the works for next year so be on the look out for more information.
