Back for its 12th year, the Robbinsville High School 100 percent Handcrafted Cutting Edge Arts and Crafts Fair will take place on Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Robbinsville High School.
Following the expansion of last year’s event, this year will also feature more than 100 unique crafters and artisans in a juried event. Previous vendors have ranged from wood, pottery and glass to jewelry, scarves and candles.
This year again, the crafters will occupy the high school’s commons, hallways and gym. Also available are a door prize giveaway and a crafters’ raffle. There is no admission fee and no parking fee. Shoppers can get a free raffle ticket for the crafters’ raffle in exchange for a toiletry item which will be donated to the Robbinsville Food Pantry. There also will be a wide selection of lunch menu items at “Cafe Jacque.”
The proceeds of the event support the Robbinsville High School theater and band students. The RHS Raven Players and the Raven Regiment are extracurricular activities, and sponsored by parent groups Friends of the Raven Players and Raven Regiment Booster Club.
Last year, the 100 percent Handcrafted event raised more than $12,000. Planning starts a year in advance with committee members organizing, updating websites, compiling vendors, advertising for shoppers, recruiting volunteers, etc. Vendor applications are voted on by several members at committee meetings.
