It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of this year's Apple Pie Crafts Fair.

Apple Pie Crafts Fair | Cancelled for 2020

In a record-breaking year, the Fair sold out of booths in just a matter of weeks.

 

After much deliberation, the Board and staff of the Library Arts Center has decided to cancel the 2020 Apple Pie Crafts Fair.  We are so sad to have to forego this annual favorite community tradition, but as it draws over 5,000 to the Town Common for one big fun summer day, we can’t see how we can do it with regards to social distancing and public safety. 

 

As this is truly one of our very favorite events of our calendar year, we will start dreaming and planning now for the 2021 fair to make sure it is better than ever to make up for missing this year.  

Vendor Refunds

Please NOTE:  All fair vendors will be refunded in full by the end of June.   If you are on our list of registered vendors, there is nothing more you need to do at this point.  If you have not received your registration fee by June 30th, please reach out to us at info@libraryartscenter.org
