Event Details

Woodstock New Paltz Arts and Crafts Fair

The bi-annual fair brings arts and crafts, culture, fun and entertainment to Ulster County.

Ulster County Fairgrounds will be hosting the Woodstock-New Paltz Arts and Crafts Fair, bringing makers, artists and art and craft lovers together. From May 25 to 27, about 300 independent artists and craftspeople from all over the United States will gather to showcase their handmade goods. The vibrant energy of the event has made it the Hudson Valley’s premier arts and crafts show. Can’t make it during May? The event also runs from August 31 to September 2.

The Woodstock-New Paltz Arts and Crafts Fair offers a variety of goods and entertainment for everyone. Exhibitors at the event include several types of art, ranging from agricultural art to body art. Goods are made out of several different materials, such as glass, wood, leather, metal and ceramics. Other goods and services include healing arts, jewelry, photography, authors/illustrators, fine art and more.

The fair also offers several major features that shouldn’t be missed! The demonstration area at the fair holds the largest assortments of art and craft techniques, where artists create their work throughout the show and exhibit the final products. Shoppers can also find handcrafted specialty foods and healthcare products, furniture architectural crafts, and handcrafted prepared foods. Don’t forget to check out all the excitement with a drink in your hand! Wineries and distilleries will provide you with something to sip on as you shop around. A children’s tent also provides kids with their own arts and crafts, wildlife presentations, book readings, face painting and body art. Live musical entertainment will be present each day of the festival as well.

Tickets that are purchased online are discounted $1 per ticket. Adult tickets are $8, while children come for free. Three-day weekend passes are available for $12.
