Want to find unique, handmade holiday gifts and enjoy a family day out? The annual Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is just the place to do that.
The fair will be at the Dulles Expo Center December 7-9, showcasing works by more than 300 top artisans. Pottery, sculpture, glass, jewelry, fashion, home and garden décor, furniture and home accessories, and photography will be on display — and for sale!
The best part is that the award-winning festival is a family affair. Parents can shop, while children can enjoy an interactive puppet theater and watch live-demonstrations of iron forging, papermaking, stone sculpting, and other media by the master craftspeople themselves. Not to mention, gourmet goodies hand-made by specialty food vendors always leave everyone wanting more.
Tickets are $10/adults (free for children under 12), and are good all three days of the Festival. But individual tickets in advance for $8 or a Four-Pack for $28 here. You can also enter the giveaway to try to win them.
Giveaway: I have two pairs of tickets up for grabs, and you can enter for a chance to win them simply by leaving a comment below telling me your favorite activity during the holiday season. To be eligible, you must like KidFriendly DC on Facebook and follow on Twitter. Winners will be picked and notified by Saturday, December 1. Good luck!
