The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and the Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival Committee are seeking artisans, crafters, food vendors and more for the upcoming 2018 Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival.
Having previously been held for a number of years at Sam Michael’s Park in Harpers Ferry, the 2018 festival will move to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, located at 1707 Old Leetown Pike, Kearneysville, WV. The Chamber has had a great partnership with the Jefferson County Parks and Recreation for many years, and sincerely thanks them for their support of the festival.
Celebrating its 43rd year, the 2018 festival will be held Sept. 28-30 and will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, rain or shine.
“I believe the vendors who make this festival a great success will be pleased with the space the new venue will allow. It’s really our amazing local artisans and crafters who make this festival a success each year,” said Aaron Howell, president of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.
The Jefferson County Fairgrounds offers multiple buildings for indoor spaces, as well as covered pavilions for outdoor spaces. Additionally, the venue boasts multiple kitchens, which will be available for food vendors; a covered food pavilion with picnic table seating; public bathrooms; a more condensed area for shopping convenience; and room for future growth. The festival’s committee believes this change in venue will ultimately benefit the artists, crafters, vendors, patrons, and staff who make the Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival a success year after year.
