Cumberland WinterFaire features the exceptional talents of over 70 crafters and artists under three roofs: the Cumberland Recreation Hall, the Cumberland Masonic Hall, and the Cumberland Museum and Archives.
Discover a variety of homemade, handmade, and fair trade goods. Products for 2018 include upcycled bags; bowls, plates, and platters made from locally sourced and salvaged wood; handcrafted, small batch baked goods and confections; unique jewelry; quality handmade soaps; handwoven and knitted wearable art; felted textiles; plant-based health and wellness products, and more.
Make a day of it and share in the festive atmosphere with local musicians appearing on two WinterFaire stages. Stop by the canteen for a tasty homemade lunch, and the Masonic Hall’s drink bar to warm up with a hot apple cider. Children are invited to create and take home a craft from the craft zone in the lobby of the Ilo Ilo Theatre.
“WinterFaire provides a great opportunity to buy one-of-a-kind holiday gifts directly from local artists and crafters while supporting a charitable organization,” said Cumberland Museum and Archives engagement co-ordinator, Anna Rambow. “Proceeds from the event assist with the ongoing work of the museum.”
WinterFaire takes place Saturday, Nov. 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A donation at any door gets you access to all locations, and the chance to win a basket of handmade products from vendors and items from the museum’s gift shop.
