HERKIMER — The 44th Annual Herkimer County Arts & Crafts Fair has been canceled, the Herkimer County College Foundation has announced.
The fair was scheduled for Nov. 14-15 at Herkimer County Community College, but has been called off due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
This long-established fine arts and crafts fair, presented by the foundation and sponsored by AmeriCU Credit Union, is one of the largest and well-respected in the region, according to event organizers.
The juried show normally features more than 120 top artisans showcasing their works including pottery, gourmet foods, wood working, textiles, weaving, jewelry and more.
“While the College has implemented a series of measures to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community, it is with an abundance of caution that the decision has been made to cancel fall event programming, including the 44th Herkimer County Arts & Crafts Fair,” said Jan Fuhrer, development program specialist for the HCCF.
Vendors will have their booth fees refunded, or can opt to have them rollover for the 2021 fair.
