Cedarhurst Art & Craft Fair
The Cedarhurst Art & Craft Fair, a southern Illinois tradition, is celebrating its 46th year! Join us the weekend after Labor Day on the picturesque grounds at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts where the Fair attracts approximately 7,000 visitors. Our Fair is supported by the City of Mt. Vernon, the Mt. Vernon Convention / Tourism Bureau, plus regional, enthusiastic communities.
We invite you to be a part of the weekend festival as we celebrate the finest in American hand-made craftsmanship. Our jury committee is looking for quality artisans in a variety of mediums. In addition to traditional artists and crafters, we welcome applications from Indie crafters, DIY crafters, and those with a unique or unconventional sense of aesthetics.
Cedarhurst, a nonprofit arts foundation, hosts one of the longest running craft fairs in the country and we are proud of our long history of supporting the local fine craft movement and promoting growth and creative expression for all artists. In addition to shopping the quality artisan booths, our weekend festival features food vendors, beer tent, music, and a Kid Zone with make-and-take crafts. Visitors to the weekend Fair are encouraged to experience our 90 acre sculpture park and visit our indoor art museum galleries.
