The Audubon Art and Craft Festival will be held Saturday and Sunday, July 19 and 20, 2013. Known regionally as the finest Art and Craft show in the Poconos, this non-profit event raises funds for student scholarships and environmentally threatened areas in the Northern Poconos. This year’s Festival theme, “A Sense of Wonder,” honors writer and naturalist Rachel Carson, whose book SILENT SPRING launched the environmental movement in 1962. Come learn more about Carson and her legacy and enjoy interactive displays that will awaken your child’s sense of wonder in the natural world.
The Festival takes place in the Wallenpaupack High School that is located on Rt. 6 two miles south east of Hawley, PA on the eastern shore of beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack.
Crafts exhibitors and artists will be coming from 13 states and Canada. They will be demonstrating and selling their unique and original work. Pottery, woodworking, fine glass work, woodcarving, leathercarving, sheepskin, wheatweaving and metalworking are just a few of the crafts you will see at the Audubon Art and Crafts Festival.
Some of the best wildlife artists from America and Canada will be displaying and selling their original art and prints at the Wildlife Art Show held in conjunction with the Festival. Truly accomplished craftsmen, the fine artisans of our Festival are among the best to be found working in America today and certainly create a wonderful experience for you and your family while in the Poconos.
