Most festivals come and go with little fanfare. They don’t catch on for one reason or another, so after a year or two, they disappear, and no one notices. That’s not the case for the Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival. This will be the festival’s 66th year, and it seems to get a little bigger and better each year. Be sure to attend the free festival on March 16–18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You will get to enjoy live entertainment, tasty cuisine, and more arts and crafts that you could even imagine.
The Art and Crafts
You’re going to come to the event for the arts and crafts, so you’ll be happy to know there will be over 230 exhibitors in attendance. Many of these exhibitors are located in the Southeast, including Alabama, but this festival has national appeal. Some come from as far as California to show their work at the festival. You’ll find everything from fine art to jewelry, and the vendors are all so friendly. They won’t push you to buy anything, so you can walk around and browse without feeling any pressure. That makes the event so much more fun.
The Kids’ Tent
You have to keep the little ones entertained if you go to the festival, and that’s a breeze, thanks to the Kids’ Tent. The festival unveiled this special area a few years ago, and it’s been a hit. The parents can sit down and relax while the kids work on a community art piece. The festival’s organizers will donate the piece to a building in Fairhope after the event. This is a great way to get your kids’ art featured in the city. Imagine how proud your kids will be once the artwork is displayed in a local building.

Food and Entertainment
The festival also has a food court and live entertainment throughout the event. This gives it a fair-type feel. Even if you aren’t a big fan of art, it’s still worth stopping by.
