After a long holiday season of giving, craft lovers in Northern Virginia will have a chance to browse and buy contemporary handmade creations at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival with only one person in mind– themselves! Taking place January 25-27 at the Dulles Expo Center, the Festival gives shoppers a great excuse to treat themselves to something nice in sculpture, glass, jewelry, fashion, leather, wood, metal, furniture, home accessories, photography and fine art.
While browsing thousands of original items by more than 250 artists from around the country, shoppers can enjoy live jazz music and sample gourmet goodies from dozens of specialty food purveyors. The three-day event offers family-friendly festivities with children’s costume storytelling by Middle Earth Studios.
This celebration of American creativity and craftsmanship is also a wonderful opportunity to “buy American” from the nation’s finest artisans offering their one-of-a-kind creations. Visitors can meet the artists who make each handcrafted piece, and all who are jury-selected for superior quality and unique style.
The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will be held Friday, January 25 and Saturday, January 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, January 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Dulles Expo Center, 4368 Chantilly Shopping Center, Chantilly, VA 20151.
Adult admission is $8 when purchased online, $10 at the door, and free for children under 12. Admission is good for all three days of the Festival. Free parking is available on site.
