Complementing the edible craftsmanship, on the sweet side, will be maple product specialists, candy and dessertmakers and a host of fine bakers, as well as more savory sorts working in olive oils, condiments and other gourmet creations, including several local vineyards and specialty winemakers.
On the more traditional inedible crafts side, special juries have whittled down entries to approximately 200 craft artists working in ceramics, fiber, glassware, jewelry, fine art, furniture, sculpture and a number of mixed media. Children’s activities will include hayrides, games and plenty of art activities.
It all takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2 at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, located on Route 9 in Rhinebeck. For further information call (845) 876-4001 or visit www.craftsatrhinebeck.com.
