Arts Plaza & Market Place 2016


Where will you find a blacksmith, a wood carver, a weaver and spinner and a glass artist together with an assemblage of contemporary artists demonstrating their craft? At the European Festival’s Arts Plaza, of course! The Arts Plaza is the place to see the continuing legacy of the European craft tradition, where things were made by hand and passed down from generation to generation. This artisan culture is still alive in Europe where local hand made goods and specialty food production is a valued part of the culture. Several artists also offer workshops throughout the weekend. Come with the whole family; to experience the artisan demonstrations and create your own work of art. See you there!

The European Festival Market Place features various vendors with products ranging from hand-made jellies and honey products to pre-packaged delicatessen and tea as well as silk art apparel, ethnic instruments and wooden toys.
