About Us

This long-established, juried fine arts and crafts fair is one of the largest and well respected in New York State. The fair is known for featuring creative vendors who offer high-quality, fine art and unique products. The juried show features artisans showcasing works of pottery, gourmet foods, wood working, textiles, weaving, oil paintings, glass, photography, watercolors, jewelry, handcrafted soaps, candles and more.

Pride of New York producers and select New York State wineries are also in attendance during this two-day event. Sunshine Artist, America’s Premier Art and Craft Show Magazine, said the show is an “…event proven to be successful for thousands of artists over the years.” This national publication also lists the Herkimer County Arts and Crafts Fair as one of many “out of the way gems.”

Held annually on the campus of Herkimer College, we are conveniently located off the NYS Thruway exit 30. The show is handicapped accessible with plenty of free parking directly adjacent to the show.

 All proceeds benefit The Herkimer County College Foundation Tuition Scholarship program.  This program is to ensure students that reside in Herkimer County or graduate from Herkimer County high schools with above average scholastic ability attend Herkimer College.  More information on this program can be found here.
