One of our most popular fundraising efforts, the Old Wethersfield Arts & Crafts Fair, returns to Cove Park for the 41st time. As always, there will be pottery, woodworking, prints, jewelry, textiles and fabric art, painting, photography, and so much more. For a complete list of participating crafters and detailed information about the event, please visit the dedicated page on our website HERE. Many of your favorite crafters and vendors return year after year. Round Hill Alpacas will be making their yearly visit to Cove Park. Free parking is available along State Street, and adjacent to the DMV.
While Google gives the address of Cove Park as 533 Main Street, you would be better served using the Solomon Wells House (220 Hartford Avenue) or the DMV (60 State Street) as a frame of reference. One entrance to the fair is directly adjacent to the DMV’s parking lot where you are welcome to park and the other is on State Street itself.
Admission for current WHS members and children under 12 accompanied by an adult is free. Advance purchase tickets are available now through this link to EventBrite or in-person at the Old Academy (150 Main Street, Wethersfield) for $7 until 5:00 pm on October 6. Thereafter, admission jumps to $10.00. Due to the nominal nature of the admission charge, only cash will be accepted at the gate.
