24th Annual Fall Craft Festival – Friday, October 17th& Saturday, October 18th
This year, the Ozark Regional Arts & Crafts Festival will be hosting the event in two great locations. Join us in Rogers at the John Q. Hammond Center and in Springdale at the NW Arkansas Convention Center. Each location will be showcasing some of the finest craftsmanship from across the United States. From the back door to the front door, and every ‘nook and cranny’ in between, you’ll find unique home décor, fashion accessories, personal beauty products, and one-of-a-kind treasures.
“The event has become a sort of vendor family reunion.” said promoters, Bill and Karen Lloyd, “A large percentage of our ‘family of vendors’ have been participating in our shows for many years and return yearly to sell their wares. We look forward to the bi-annual spring and fall shows.”
The Springdale location is proud to highlight local artist Elizabeth Warren representing “Your Front Door”, selling beautifully handcrafted custom wreaths and floral décor. And returning this year, Whispering Meadows Vineyard and Winery from McAlester, Oklahoma will once again be featuring their ever-so-popular homegrown/handcrafted wines and crowd favorite ‘winerita’ mixes.
Darrell McCandless from Decatur, Texas will be joining the Rogers location this year. Darrell offers beautiful small and large pieces of seasonal wall décor which will be showcased in one of our three mini-salons.
And for those of you looking to delight more than your eyes, be sure to visit our scrumptious food vendors.Tye Gardner returns from Wisconsin to offer his 17 varieties of cheese as well as 5 varieties of sausage. And your sweet tooth will drool with delight as you enjoy sweet treats by Mia Tarts & More, delightful truffles from Royal Treats, Yum Yo’s Yogurt, and the chocolate fountain of Ms. Salty’s Fried Fruit Pies.
