West Craft Fest returns on Saturday, September 11, 2021 (rain date September 12)at The Woodlands in West Philly.
To allow for increased social distancing, there is a new layout this year! Look for local wares on both the East and West sides of the main entrance, along Woodland Avenue. Previously the food vendors were located at the far West of the event. Now they will be at the East end, to the left as you enter, along with half of the makers' booths. The live music and performances by Tinycircus will still be located at the far west, and the restrooms are a short walk south of there (no more portables!)
Shop 90+ local artists, crafters and makers of
handmade jewelry, original artworks, prints, clothing, ceramics, baby gifts, stationery, candles, soaps, toys, tinctures and treasures galore.
While you're there, explore The Woodlands' 54 walkable acres, including a digital tour of its Grave Gardens, community orchard project, as well as resting places of thousands of Philadelphians since the 1840s.
