38th Annual Apples & Crafts Fair

Nothing says autumn like apples and crafts! On October 9 and 10 from 10am to 5pm, check out the 38th Annual Apples & Crafts Fair, where more than 100 juried craftspeople will be selling their wares. You’ll find handmade crafts, specialty food products, and much more. Proceeds benefit the nonprofit Woodstock Recreation Center, Inc.

Even though the fair is in its 38th year, attendees can always expect something different. “It changes every year,” says Recreation Director Gail Devine. “We are always excited to see the variants and quality of crafters that we get each year. We have some crafters that have been coming for 15 or 20 years, and we always have new crafters. The crafters are all juried, and it’s all handmade crafts.”

Aside from the talented crafters, there’s another thing that makes this fair special: “It’s in Woodstock during foliage season, so that’s the backdrop, the foliage and the hills,” says Devine. And don’t forget about the food! “The food tent is run by us and it is all homemade soups and chilis donated by the community.”

This year’s event at Bailey’s Meadow on Route 4 in Woodstock is not to be missed. “We have many new crafters coming this year that we probably our largest amount of new crafters and new types of crafters than we’ve seen in a while,” says Devine. Adults pay only $3 per person, and ages 12 and under are free.
