What Can You Expect to See and Do At the Festival?
The Festival is a 3-day event from Friday through Sunday from 10am-5pm. The beautiful Charles R Wood Park is a short walk to the Village Center and the Million Dollar Beach. Make it a full summer day or weekend enjoying all that Lake George has to offer during this lovely time of year in the Adirondacks.
Slab rolled pottery with leaves imprinted to show the true marvels of nature.
The result is leaf imprints on functional pottery and unique clay based woven baskets.
Baskets are woven onto the clay bases and embellished with leather, copper, and beads.
Garden pieces, vases and storage, and tableware.
Jim Bellows explains that Chain Maille is a series of interconnected, woven metal rings. “Once worn by knights as a form of protection, it has been refined and modified to create elegant, classic jewelry. We hand form and cut our rings.”
Helen Yetman-Bellows explains she creates “signed original designs, one line at a time, combining simple ancient techniques to create intricate, complex results. (No two pieces are exactly the same – expect slight variations).”
Chain Maille Hand Tools
Jim uses special hand tools to create Chain Maille using simple ancient techniques.
Textiles and Writings
Helen also uses a process called sublimation to create wearable art on scarves and wristlets
What People are Saying
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what we’ve been told!
We had a great time at this festival. So many beautiful things and my kids had a blast. We stayed all day and even came back on Saturday.
I’ve never been to a craft fair that had so many other things to do. The food, music, and activities were an extra bonus.
We have followed Craftproducers shows in Vermont for years. It was a surprise not to have free parking here, but the admission price offset it and the parking fees were not bad at all. It was worth the ride over for sure.
Craftproducers launched TWO new shows in Lake George in 2021. The Lake George Art and Craft Festival was July 30-August 1 and the Lake George BBQ and Music Festival was a couple weeks later on August 13-15. Both shows have great food and activities for kids. But the main focus of the Art and Craft Festival is on the over 125 juried artists and artisans, while the BBQ has a smaller, non-juried Marketplace with a primary focus on Barbecue Vendors and Live Music on the Big Stage all weekend.
The Festival site is in Lake George, NY at the Charles R Wood Park (Festival Commons) per the following map. Our office is in Charlotte, VT. Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or feedback regarding our Festivals and Events.
