Welcome arts and crafts fans from all over. Thousands are expected to descend on the Schroon Lake Town Park atop the beach to visit more than 100 vendors. The action starts at at 10 am.
The fair, sponsored by the Schroon Lake Association, (SLA) those terrific folks dedicated to preserving our lake and river paradise, will be at their tent selling raffle tickets for a Hornbeck Canoe. Volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions about the lake.
All profits that the SLA derives from the fair go toward their continuing efforts to protect and maintain the health and welfare of the lake: paying for a certified lake manager, funding scientific studies of the lake water and underwriting the fees involved in milfoil harvesting.
And there is gonna be something for everybody, with all crafts represented: jewelry, sculpture, woodwork, photography, painting, you name it, it will be at the fair.
Artists from as far away as Montreal, New York City and beyond will join locals from here and all over the North Country.
And for repeat visitors, if there’s a favorite artist you want to catch up with, chances are they will be in the same spot as in previous years. The Town of Schroon has prohibited dogs from entering onto Town property during public events, so please leave you pooches at home.
Hungry? The Fair has got you covered. The Schroon Lake Lions Club will be serving up hot dogs and burgers, and a number of food vendors are also expected.
