Our show is in its 20th year. All proceeds benefit Norwood High School Students. What makes our show unique is that we have the students help our venfors move their merchandise to and from their cars. We have over 65 crafts, all displaying hand made items for sale. We serve a continental breakfast for our vendors, free of charge, and also provide a hot lunch to all those who attend the fair for a small fee.
Our event runs rain or shine since it is held indoors. We are a juried event so as to allow as many different types of artisans to display their wares.
