Once again, thanks to all of our exhibitors, all of the volunteers who run the event and the Shelton community, the Jaycees 48th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair was an incredible success! We had beautiful weather (except for that 10 minute stretch around 3:30pm) and tons of visitors. We couldnâ€™t have asked for a better day.
Mark your calendars now! Always the First Sunday in June on the Huntington Green, our 2013 event will be on June 2nd with a rain date on the 2nd Sunday (June 9th).Â Click on the Arts & Crafts Fair tab on our home page for all the details.
We had 76 registered exhibitors in 2012 and the quality & diversity of our exhibitors was second to none. We consider diversity the hallmark of our fair. Itâ€™s a juried event with cash prizes for Best in Arts & Best in Crafts. We limit exhibitors to a maximum of three in each category.Â In 2012, as in previous years, we had to deny several applications in order to create that â€œperfect mixâ€ that our participants have grown to expect.
The 2012 Arts & Crafts Fair was chaired by Nikole Lindley. Volunteers included Kate Jager, Michael Sheehan, Jim Lee, Olga Silverman, Veronica Young, and Jeff Mason along with past members Val Sabetta, Eric Carasone, Wendy Holden, Mark Holden and Jim Nissen. We also had help from 2012 CT Jaycees President Marc Dynder & CT Jaycees Executive VP Tracy Wood. 2012 Judges were Veronica Young, Jeff Mason, Olga Silverman, Val Sabetta & Tracy Wood.
