The Madison County Historical Society was voted Best Local Event for the 60th Annual Madison County Craft Festival in the Oneida Dispatch Reader’s Choice Awards.

We are honored to be recognized by the community for our long-standing event!

Enjoy a fun family weekend outdoors by purchasing handmade items from our talented artisans, eating delicious food from the food trucks, purchasing wine from NYS wineries, joining us under our kids’ activity tent for kids’ activities, partaking in guided house tours, and listening to live music.

Join us under our kid activity tent on the side yard for our scheduled kid activities.  Imagination Station with Maya Phillips will be joining the festival with her free interactive activities for kids. Stop by the Cherry Valley Country Spinners and Fiber Guild tent set up on the side yard to watch their spinning and fiber art demonstrations at the show. Cherry Valley Country Spinners and Fiber Guild’s mission is to preserve and perpetuate the art of hand spinning and fiber arts by educating the public through demonstrations, lectures, and displays while providing instruction and social life in spinning and fiber arts for its members. There will also be free house tours of Cottage Lawn offered.

We are excited to announce a raffle drawing of a bench created and donated by New York State Designer Blacksmiths. The drawing of the bench will be on September 8. Tickets available now and during the show are $5 each or three for $10. New York State Designer Blacksmiths will be on the grounds by the agricultural barn demonstrating the art of blacksmithing all weekend.

We have a wide selection of contemporary arts and crafts, ranging from functional to decorative works including fabric, glass, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, metal, glass, floral, drawings, paintings, jewelry photography, soap, skincare products, leather, and wood.
