Fans of handmade artisan crafts & specialty gourmet foods might remember the fan-favorite Sugarloaf Craft Festival which unfortunately shuttered during the pandemic. But thankfully a new craft show has emerged to fill the void, thanks to Howard Alan Events & American Craft Endeavors! Inviting many familiar vendors from past Sugarloaf Festivals, Howard Alan Events already held a successful re-launch of the Oaks, PA craft show from November 5-7 and has done the same for Edison, NJ from November 12-14!
This Holiday Art & Craft Festival was held at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center in Edison and boasted over 200 vendors specializing in various crafts, services, and specialty foods. Though this event kicked off as a holiday show, Howard Alan plans on continuing the tradition by holding seasonal events for all occasions! Here you can find woodwork, jewelry, apparel, photography & art, glassware, metalwork, and the most unique & intricate designs you can imagine!
Some of the products you might find at a Howard Alan craft festival near you include custom handmade copper art by Jackie Stier, vintage horn instruments repurposed into lighting fixtures by Lightdents, and even ornate wood putters made with exotic woods by Michael & Barbara Keith… plus so many more! And with samples to try from some of the best gourmet foods, you’re bound to walk away with something tasty like Todd’s DIRT Seasoning, some fresh baked goods from Baker’s Bounty, or a bottle (or two) of wine!
Howard Alan Craft Festivals are super affordable to attend and only cost $10 for any or all 3 days of the event! Check their website to find a show near you and come support amazing local artisans & businesses, while doing a little gift shopping for your loved ones (or just for yourself)!
