Peters Valley School of Craft presents its 51st Annual Craft Fair, held at the fully accessible Sussex Co. Fairgrounds, less than 60 miles from NYC in the beautiful Sussex Skylands region, and conveniently located off of Route 206. The show receives approximately 5,000 sophisticated attendees mainly from NJ, NY, PA, CT. The show is advertised extensively throughout the tri-state area and on social media. There is a webpage featuring all participating artists with links to individual websites. Cash prizes will be awarded.

As this year is unusual, we are anticipating the need to accommodate a smaller show, and will accept at least 100 artists initially, and up to our typical 150 as conditions allow. Should we need to cancel the in-person 2021 show due to government-issued, Covid-related mass gathering restrictions or local health concerns, all booth fees will be fully refunded. Application fees will not be refunded. Peters Valley will decide by June 25th if in-person show does not look feasible, and will announce alternative plans at this time.
