St Mark’s Art & Craft Fair is a collaboration in which we bring together talent to showcase (and sell) their creations. In past years we have had a range of artists and crafters offering items ranging from hand knit sweaters to hand-turned wooden bowls and birdhouses, from homemade jam to ceramics and glassworks. The Art & Craft Fair also offers a bake sale including a great selection of cookies sold by the pound. Our kitchen offers breakfast and lunch items such as homemade soups, chili and loaded baked potato for sale. We are excited to offer an eclectic a raffle of donated handmade items that benefits St. Mark’s Church.

St. Mark’s Art & Craft Fair runs from 9 am to 3 pm. The venue, located on a well-traveled road in East Longmeadow, offers two floors of 9+ spacious rooms and ample parking.

St Mark’s Art & Craft Fair began in 2011 by a small group who have decades of art and craft experience behind us including all aspects of running successful shows as well as hands on in Arts and/or Crafts. We continue to learn and grow each year both from our own experience and from the feedback of participants and shoppers alike and have since doubled in size, while keeping our focus on quality, individuality and our shopper’s experience. We are very much looking forward to hosting our annual fair in November. Trying to give Artisans as much say in the use of their own space, the only requirement right now is “handmade” with the occasional (committee approved) exception, such as the church raffle baskets. 

We look forward to seeing you in November!

Art & Craft Fair 2021

Saturday, November 20, 2021     9:00 am - 3:00 pm

St. Mark’s Art & Craft Fair runs from 9 am to 3 pm with set up times Friday 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday 7 a.m. – 8:58 a.m. We ask that you arrive prior to 8:30 a.m. Saturday.   We lock the doors then to keep early shoppers at bay. Artisans MUST be ready for 9:00 a.m.  door opening and remain open until doors close at 3:00 p.m., no exception.

On the day of the fair, all artisans must park their cars off site at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 181 Elm St. in E. Longmeadow.  A van will be available to take you back and forth to your car.  This frees up available parking space for our customers. 

The only requirement of artisans is "handmade".   We do require a description of your goods when applying to avoid an overabundance or competing art/crafts and will limit as needed. This also helps when it comes to assigning spaces. 

The Art & Craft Fair offers lunch items such as homemade soups, chili and sandwiches for sale and a Raffle of donated items that benefits St. Mark's Church (and helps to keep the cost of the space rental down).  A very popular cookie-walk with hundreds of homemade cookies is also available.

Advertising includes Newspaper and online ads, lawn signs, local flyers, a Facebook page, as well as participant’s own avenues & word of mouth. 

Incomplete applications will not be considered. Email confirmations will be given to all applications accepted. St Mark’s Church office does not have Art & Craft Fair info, contact listed below, please feel free to reach out. 

Please note:  If the fair has to be cancelled in the fall once again due to another outbreak of the virus, you will, of course, be fully refunded.

Blessings,

The Rev. Sandi Albom, Interim Priest
