Garrison Art Center’s Fine Crafts Fair is one of the most well established high quality crafts fairs in the region. Set on the edge of the Hudson River just an hour north of New York City in Garrison, New York, with majestic river views, the Fair offers a truly exquisite spot to shop and is a premier event in the Hudson Valley for collectors of hand-made traditional and alternative craft. An intimate Fair featuring 60+ juried artists participate with furniture, photography, jewelry, gourmet food, glass items, textiles, fine art, ceramics, wooden utensils, tableware, and more. This year we welcome back the Sloop Woody Guthrie offering free rides for fair attendees. Visitors can take the Train to the Fair which is steps from the MTA Metro North Hudson Line. Free parking at the Metro North train station or at Garrison School, plus a free shuttle service makes this a popular event for those who live near the river towns from NYC to Poughkeepsie.
