March 09, 2012: Today the sky is blue, the sun is out, and the American flag on our porch is waving in a gentle breeze. This is a day to turn one’s thoughts to the up-coming Arts & Crafts Festival in Shinnston. The second annual Arts & Crafts Festival will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10 AM to 3 PM in Downtown Shinnston. Crafters and artists should contact Nathan Drain, Recreation Coordinator, at 304-592-6058 for more information and to register for a table. Registration fee for a table is $10. (In case of liquid sunshine, everything will be in the Lighthouse on Rebecca Street.)
The turnout for the first annual Arts & Crafts in Shinnston was such a rousing success of showcasing area crafters, artisans, and artists – in spite of the liquid sunshine we were blessed with (read about it on our previous blogs) – that we expect bigger and better in 2012. A request has been submitted for a warm, sunny day on April 28. We hope to see YOU there!
