April 15, 2011: Tomorrow, April 16, is the first annual Shinnston Arts & Crafts Festival. There will be at least 30 vendors! SUNSHINE OR RAIN!!! The festival will take place on Bridge Street in Shinnston. If we are blessed with sunshine, the Festival will be held in the parking lot between the Bice-Ferguson Museum and the Lowe Public Library. If we are not so blessed, just come to the Shinnston Women’s Club and the Shinnston Volunteer Fire Department, the alternate locations. There is a wonderful variety of arts & crafts signed up for this event. The shops on Pike Street are having sidewalk sales (inside if our sunshine is in drops) and St Ann’s Catholic Church is having a bake sale.
The Gillum House Bed & Breakfast will be represented with Coffee Corner. In addition to selling Shinnston logo mugs for the ON TRAC Team, Gillum House has roasted FTO Peru, Sumatra, Brazil, Columbia, Hawaiian Kauai and Hawaiian Maui coffees to be sold. There will be some tea for sale also.
Come on down to Shinnston starting at 9 A.M. for a fun-filled day from one end of Downtown to the other!
