LYNDONVILLE — The Burklyn Arts Council will be holding its annual fair on Saturday, July 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Bandstand Park, Lyndonville.
The juried craft fair features children’s activities, music and food, including the organization’s famous strawberry shortcake.
All profits from the 54th Burklyn Arts Crafts Fair support grants and scholarships for the arts in the schools and communities within the Kingdom East Unified School District.
Exhibitors at this fair must first pass a jury process to join the fair.
Their crafts are evaluated for originality, excellence of workmanship, mastery of their medium, technical proficiency and aesthetics.
The Burklyn Arts Summer Fair features some of the most talented crafters and tradespeople in Vermont and northern New Hampshire.
“The Burklyn Arts Summer Fair is one of the highlights of the summer,” said Burklyn Arts Council Chair Cara Berryman. “The wonderful assortment of crafters, music and great food draws visitors from all over Vermont and the North Country to the fair.”
The organization’s two fairs, the second in December, provide financial assistance to 14 towns within the school district.
Awards can include covering ticket costs for professional performances and artists’ fees for residencies in the schools to helping with the purchase of special supplies/equipment and more.
Burklyn is an all-volunteer organization with no paid employees.
