Bennington, VT - Craftproducers presents the 41st  Annual Southern Vermont Art and Craft Festival, the jewel in the crown of an ever expanding Bennington Arts Weekend, August 2-4, 2019. The Festival will be held at Camelot Village (66 Colgate Heights, Bennington, VT  05201. 125 artists, artisans, and specialty food producers will showcase their creations under spacious Camelot tents. Along with craft shopping, the ambiance is festive: live music, craft demos, kids activities, and a varied food court, serving a menu to please any palate and featuring Vermont Craft beers. 
 
Fair-goers enjoy the intimacy of the show with many tourists booking their Vermont summer vacations to coincide with this weekend. The Festival connects both the artist and the customer in a unique relationship: the buyer gets to know the maker of the product, hear the story about how it’s made, and learns about the artisan and his/her life. The Festival thrives on uniting the shopper and the “maker.” Legions of day trippers from Albany/Saratoga and the Berkshires rarely miss the chance to visit their favorite “crafter” again, and again.
 
While the Craft Festival is taking place at Camelot Village, the Town of Bennington is busy and bustling with Vermont craft beer on tap and food vendors offering local farm to table fare. On  Friday downtown is alive with First Friday. This year the prestigious Bennington Museum is offering free admission to all craft fair attendees, a $10 value. When getting your craft show ticket at the entry gate, ask for your voucher to the Museum. This generous offer is valid Friday through Sunday only.  Besides all the ongoing Museum exhibitions,  there are two current special ones: Fields of Change: 1960s Vermont and Color Field: 1960 Bennington Modernism.
 
The Southern Vermont Art and Craft Festival runs 10-5 on Friday and Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. There is a special price for adult admission on Friday, $5 and $8 Saturday and Sunday;  and kids and parking are free. No pets. Complete info can be found at www.craftproducers.com.
