Jensen Drive, in front of the Crafts Center, will be closed off and traffic will be re-routed along Dunn Ave. The Coliseum Deck will be open and parking will be free and available for both days of the event.

Sunday will be an additional opportunity to shop. Enjoy one-of-a-kind, handmade works by more than 50 of The Crafts Center’s local artists representing a variety of media: clay, fibers, glass, jewelry,painting, wood, photography, mixed media and more!
