Holiday Craft Fair

December 2 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Illustration by Lorraine Fox.

The Society of Illustrators is excited to announce a new holiday tradition based on the popular centuries-old European open-air markets. Spend a day with friends and family at the Society’s museum while holiday shopping for crafts brought to you by our talented creators. Traditional treats and beverages will be available to enjoy while browsing three floors of art. Artist booths will be located throughout the Society’s galleries, and fun activities and programs will be scheduled for all ages to enjoy!


We will be limiting entry every hour to allow for a comfortable shopping experience! Choose your entry time slot and show up anytime during that one hour time period. Names will be saved on a list at the door. Once inside the Fair you may stay and shop as long as you want! 

On the day of the event please check our website for walk-in availability. If an hour is sold out, walk-ins will not be permitted. 


General: $15
Children 10 and under: $10
Children under 2: FREE
