Annapolis Arts and Crafts Festival
When is an arts and crafts festival more than an arts and crafts festival? When it is also a WINE FESTIVAL!
A juried arts and crafts festival offering a weekend of over 200 fine arts and handmade crafts, performances, and wine tastings from over 15 Maryland wineries, gourmet food and activities for the whole family.
The Annapolis Arts and Crafts Festival combines not just the largest collection of artists and craftsmen ever presented at a festival in Annapolis but features a Wine and Specialty Food Pavilion that rivals other wine festivals in size and scope. Over fifteen Maryland wineries will be represented, each offering a selection of their special wines:
Cove Point Winery
Cygnus Wine Cellars
Far Eastern Shore Winery
Fiore Winery and Distillery
Friday's Creek Winery
Great Shoals Winery
Layton's Chance Vineyard and Winery
Perigeaux Vineyard and Winery
Port of Leonardtown Winery
Romano Vineyard and Winery
Running Hare Vineyard
Solomons Island Winery
Woodhall Wine Cellars
So it's a day of shopping for arts and crafts from over 200 artists employing a variety of medium: painting, sculpture, ceramics, digital art, mixed media, printmaking, jewelry, fiber art, glass, wood, leather, metal and photography ---while enjoying a glass of Maryland wine (or purchase a bottle or two to take home) --- while listening to smooth jazz. Life is good!
Please, no pets.
