The Fair will take place on December 2 and 3 at the historic Greenbelt Community Center located at 15 Crescent Road in Greenbelt, Maryland.  Now in its 46th  year, the Art and Craft Fair is a vibrant tradition. Approximately 70 exhibitors are chosen to participate annually, selling their own original paintings, prints, photography, clothing, accessories, pottery, wood crafts, musical instruments, personal care products, toys and much more. Joining them are local poets and authors as well as local non-profit arts, humanities and service organizations. Groups are invited to sell or raffle crafts related to their mission; they may also sell tickets, memberships, gift certificates and wares with their logo. The Art and Craft Fair is open to youth exhibitors as well as adults. Applications are available online at www.greenbeltmd.gov/arts. There is a fee to participate in the event, but there is no cost to apply. For more information, contact Anne Gardner at 240-542-2060.
