Over 20 arts events in Pennsylvania Oct. 4-13
With a strong community of talented artisans, craft studios, galleries and organizations promoting the region’s crafts, Pennsylvania is a predictable hot spot for this year’s American Craft Week, Oct. 4-13.
More than 20 event locations in Pennsylvania will present one of the nation’s largest regional celebrations of American Craft. Residents and tourists alike will be treated to exhibits, demonstrations, markets, lectures and more in Cumberland Valley, Boiling Springs, Boyertown, Carlisle, Lancaster, Ligonier, Mechanicsburg, Newport, Philadelphia, and Reading.
“2013 marks the fourth year of American Craft Week celebrations. Each year the participation becomes stronger, attracting more artists, sponsors and fans,” says Diane Sulg, co-chair of American Craft Week. “This year, we’ll have nearly 1,000 events with over tens of thousands attendees throughout the nation.”
Regional sponsors for American Craft Week include the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau and the Pennsylvania Guild Fine Craft Fair (at Rittenhouse Square).
