Time flies - before long Spring will be here. Spring is nearing and it is always the most favorite season of the year. It couldn't be nicer than in Fairhope, Alabama, where thousands of beautiful flowers, including azaleas, are in full bloom. Come to Fairhope and celebrate the beginning of Spring! The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce proudly announces the 62nd Annual Arts & Crafts Festival in Fairhope, which is scheduled for March 14, 15 & 16, 2014. Festival hours are 10 am - 5 pm daily and there is no admission charge.
Over 230 exhibitors from throughout the nation will bring their best works to show and sell at this prestigious juried show. Live entertainment will be going on throughout the three-day event and unique cuisine will be served up in the food court. It all takes place on the streets of beautiful downtown Fairhope, Alabama. Last year the event attracted more than 300,000 visitors to the area. The festival was chosen as one of the top 20 events in the southeast for March by the Alabama Bureau of Tourism and the event is also one of the top 20 events selected by the Southeast Tourism Society. The festival was also selected for a "Best of Bama" award by the readers of Alabama Magazine.
