Top craft artisans from throughout the region will offer for sale their original textiles, jewelry, woodcarving, metalwork, pottery, photography, chairs, baskets, ironwork, stained glass and much more. Shopping doesn’t get any better than this. Come for the shopping or come for the food! “The Blue Porch at the Arts Center” will provide traditional southern cooking inside the Arts Center with additional food booths to choose from down on the river. 

The White Oak Craft Fair will present an enormous variety of work, all of which is chosen for it excellence and integrity by a highly respected selection panel.  In an age when mass production makes so many things widely available, the White Oak Crafts Fair celebrates the inspiration and skill of the individual maker as well as being an opportunity to appreciate uniqueness.  Although a high percentage of the participants in the show are typically perennial favorites, new exhibitors join the show each year, so there is always something new and fresh for visitors to look forward to.
