All Things Local and Awesome at the Artisan Fair and Music Festival by Miriam Lamey

Saturday, Nov. 11

One thing Erie does superbly well is celebrating its local talent and artisans. Another golden opportunity to browse and buy all things handmade and crafty arrives with the Erie Day School Artisan Fair and Music Festival, back for its fourth year.

Hosted by the Erie Day School Parent Group and Grade 8 Families, the event showcases the work of all ages, much of which is for sale. If visual art is your thing, chances are you will be able to pick up something beautiful for your walls — or a holiday gift because, you know, it’s getting to be that time of year again. Prefer your aesthetic pleasures in pottery form? Look for some of the gorgeous creations on offer. And if you’re the kind of person who would rather deck out themselves than their halls, be sure to peruse the locally-made jewelry, which is sure to be an excellent complement to that holiday outfit you’re already planning. Some of the confirmed artists include Mary Orsini, A Neck’s Best Thing, Karen Koper, Chinese Lagoon, Winslow Woodworking, The Copper Twig and Sean Malmberg.

During the festival, feel free to take a break from the retail activity and pause to listen to some of the many musicians who will be providing the soundtrack. Acts which will take the stage over the weekend include Justin Moyar, the Erie Dance Theater, and Jonathan Nolan. If the kids are with you — and they should be, it’s a great family-friendly event — be sure to catch a puppet show performance by the National Marionette Theatre before heading out.

You can start on your holiday shopping early, or simply sit back and take in all the fair has to offer — it’s up to you. Just be sure to swing by this soon-to-be seasonal Erie staple and show your support to our great community. — Miriam Lamey
