The annual Village Art & Craft Fair takes place in Biltmore Village on August 4th and 5th. The fair is in its 46th year and it continues a long tradition of bringing high-quality crafts to Historic Biltmore Village.
It hosts 114 artists from 16 states, representing the full spectrum of craft media: jewelry, ceramic, wood, fiber, metals, two-dimensional art and more. The craft fair is a great opportunity to encounter new artists (26 are first-time exhibitors) and to talk with crafters one-on-one. 36 artists are from Western North Carolina. Thousands of shoppers from all over the southeast arrive to stroll through the fair, discovering unique gifts for friends, family and themselves!
Illustrator and author, Daryl Slaton, has provided the artwork for this year’s poster and t-shirt design. Specializing in whimsical and fantastic imagery, Daryl’s work is fun and memorable. His first Craft Fair design for us was in 2011 and showed three felines springing to life as they escape the confines of a midnight carousel. This year’s artistic kitty riding a tiger is sure to be another fan favorite!
Fair hours are Saturday 10:00 am to 7:00 pm and Sunday 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm, rain or shine. Admission is free! Homemade refreshments are available at church sponsored concession booths with proceeds benefiting the Cathedral’s outreach program.
