For the past 23 years downtown Haddonfield, NJ transforms into a lively marketplace with an impressive collection of talented artists and crafters. With over 270 booths and an estimated 100,000 visitors in the course of a weekend the Haddonfield Crafts and Fine Art Festival has become one of the main attractions in town.
White tents set side-by-side on Kings Highway East and Tanner Street displayed wares of woodworkers, potters, weavers, jewelry makers and more. Local musicians and entertainers performed on two different stages.
“I think artists appreciate the opportunity to share their creative vision with shoppers and the festival goers are happy to learn how the work is made; whether it’s a piece of fine jewelry, a tie-dye blouse, a dress etc. So it’s just a great opportunity to create a community around the arts” says Marcy Boroff, owner of Renaissance Craftables, the company that is responsible for producing the Haddonfield Crafts and Fine Art festival.
