Festival Fete 2013 Holiday Market Artists!

All of the artisans and crafters that participate in a Festival Fete show are juried for admission so you will find an excellent variety of products at very high quality. Most of our vendors are local, some from other parts of New England so you can feel good about supporting small, local businesses!

Children under 12 years old are free, and there will be visits with Santa, FREE gift wrapping, a Children’s Creation Station, festive food and strolling merriment!

If you’re looking for more “Artful ways to shop” locally and in the smaller towns of RI, SoRhode Island online features a nice article that describes some venues south of Providence to explore. The Craftland show on Westminster Street in Providence continues this weekend until 12/24. I think I may check out the East Greenwich Library “Winter’s Eve” for a juried art exhibit and concert by The Hummingbird Trio. The event takes place tonight from 5:30 – 8:00 pm and it’s free. This is such a great time of year for socializing and shopping in festive venues – the options are endless! Please share with us what events you will discover this weekend by commenting below.

Have a super weekend!
