  • Holiday Festival of Crafts

    November 24-26, 2017

    Fri & Sat, 10-5; Sun, 11-4 $5 admission

    Once a year, the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving, the Worcester Center for Crafts is transformed into a European-style holiday marketplace complete with twinkly lights and the sweet smell of evergreens. This juried marketplace celebrates American handmade craft and is our antidote to the big-box madness of holiday shopping. By bringing together craft artists of the highest caliber all under one roof, the Holiday Festival of Crafts is a one-stop holiday shopping opportunity for unique, handmade gifts in a range of prices for men, women, and children. Craft collectors also will find that this is an opportunity to compare a wide range of work suitable for collecting.

    Usually featuring over 60 fine craft artists and their work, the Festival is held indoors and includes free parking and an on-site café.
