Craft Shows in Greene!
By Samantha Swisher
Craft shows usher in the holiday season in Greene County, Pennsylvania. These provide the perfect atmosphere to buy unique, handmade gifts or decorations as we celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. Various craft shows will be taking place throughout the county leading up through the holiday season. Grab a group of friends or family and browse through the various vendors, decorative displays, and unique items that will bring a special touch to your holiday happenings.
The first of the occasions will be November 5th from 9am to 3pm where we will see the anticipated return of the Social Service League’s 27th annual Holiday Extravaganza which will be taking place at the EQT Rec Center on EverGreene Drive in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. The cost of admission is a two dollar donation and children under twelve will be admitted for free. All items featured at the show will be hand-made pieces by local artists. A free activities room will be provided to engage the little ones while the grown-ups shop.
Following the Service League’s Holiday Craft Show, the EQT REC Center is hosting their annual Fall Vendor Show. The event takes place from 8am to 2:30pm on Saturday, November 12th. This show provides an exciting opportunity to support local, small businesses and give independent artists a chance to showcase their work. Admission is $2 and kids are free.
The Greene Academy of Art will host their annual Christmas Craft Show taking place on November 12th. The vendors will feature various items such as candles, county crafts, handmade jewelry, wooden art, and fused glass art, all of which could make a one-of-a-kind gift waiting to be unwrapped on Christmas morning. Admission and parking is free.
This year Waynesburg VFW Auxiliary is also hosting their own Fall Craft and Vender Show taking place on November 19th from 8am to 2pm. Enjoy the day and shop for hundreds of handmade crafts on the pastures of the Greene County Fairgrounds this holiday season to bring some seasonal cheer to your home and a fun outing for the family.
