Apple Pie Crafts Fair 2011 -- Fairgoers

We have been receiving lots of calls from crafters wondering about whether or not we will be holding the Apple Pie Crafts Fair this summer.  While we are so hopeful this will happen, a final determination has not yet been made by our board of directors.  Know that if you are a crafter who has participated in the Fair in the last several years, we will be sending out an email with details soon, and you will be the first to know if we open registration for the 2021 Fair.  Thank you for your patience!
2020 would have marked the historic 47th Annual Apple Pie Crafts Fair–one of New England’s longest running craft fairs on the Newport Town Common.  It was with a heavy heart that the Library Arts Center had to cancel last summer’s Fair in the interest of public health due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Every year, more than 2000 New Englanders make their way to Newport from all around the state of New Hampshire, and New England to enjoy 100+ booths of handmade crafts, including pottery, woodworking, glass, fiber arts and more. The fair also features live music, an apple pie contest & sale, and the Firemens’ Famous Chicken Barbecue.

Apple Pies in a Row

In addition to all of the festivities on the Town Common, fairgoers will also enjoy the Richards Library Festival that features an outstanding book sale, cookie walk, crafts for kids, a children’s tent, and lunch on the library porch.

APPLE PIE CONTEST 

Do you have an award-winning apple pie recipe?  Put it to the test at the favorite Apple Pie Contest!  The only rules stipulate that the main ingredient of pies must be apples, and that only the first twelve pies entered will be considered for judging in the contest.    No entry fee.  One entry per family, please.

PIE SALE

Pies of all kinds are baked by members of the Arts Center community and sold to benefit Arts Center programs.  


The Apple Pie Crafts Fair is proudly presented by the the Library Arts Center Gallery & Studio–a non-profit community arts organization in the heart of downtown Newport, New Hampshire.  Proceeds from Fair booth sales & the pie sale benefit the Arts Center’s exhibits & programs.
