11th Annual Artisans' Fair

We are most pleased and excited to announce the call for artists for the tenth annual Olde Towne Artisans’ Fair to take place at the beautiful living history park in the heart of Historic North Augusta, SC.

NEW: We will have a Silent Auction starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. Come to the Fair to find out more and see the great artwork available!

Olde Towne and its friends and supporters are planning a high quality art festival in this beautiful park. The site is green and shady with a lovely central lawn and a gurgling stream. A colonial tavern, outdoor beehive oven, blacksmith shop, smoke house, and eighteenth century meeting house contribute to the serene atmosphere of the park. The park is a gem and a perfect site for an arts festival.

The purpose of this The Artisans’ Fair is to highlight a wide array of Fine Artists and Skilled Artisans. In addition to booths displaying items for sale, several sites throughout the park will have craftsmen demonstrating their skills. The park with its greenery, stream, footbridge, and eighteenth century buildings is a wonderful backdrop for a top-notch festival.

Our goal, as always, is to produce a top tier event that is profitable, enjoyable for the artists, and exciting for the visitors; a place where each artist is made to feel at home and will look forward to coming back each year. We want this to be the one event each year that you will put on your calendar in ink rather than pencil.

The Festival will start on Friday night with a preview Gala. Again this year the North Augusta Chamber of Commerce will join us in hosting this Gala. Visitors who attend this special—and free—preview will be able to meet the artists, partake of music, wine, cheese, and hors d’oeuvres, and be the first to see and purchase the fine arts and crafts.
