Old Deerfield Fall Crafts FairBy: Jane Howard | On: September 17, 2013
This weekend, September 21 and 22, the Old Deerfield Crafts Fair will be in the grounds of Memorial Hall on Memorial Street. Called one of the most beautiful crafts fairs and chosen by Yankee Magazine as one of the Top 20 Events in Massachusetts, this is a sweet event right here in town.
There is a wide array of juried crafts, but not so many you feel absolutely overwhelmed: theorems, jewelry, quilts, baskets, woodwork, pottery, soaps, music, dolls, bird feeders, teddy bears, purses, clothes… It is a feast for the eyes and Champney’s is open from 12 noon on for a bite to eat and to rest your fairgoer feet.
You can park at one of Channing Bete’s car parks on 5&10 and get a free shuttle in. The price of admission is only $6 and if you go to www.deerfield-craft.org you can download and print out a discount on admission.
Hours are 10-5 on Saturday, 10-4 on Sunday, and much of the cost of the admission ticket goes towards funding the Deerfield Teachers’ Center educational programs and Memorial Hall Museum, the oldest museum association in the country.
