selgasArt / Garrison Art Center / Riverside Crafts Fair


We are thrilled to welcome community members and fine arts and craft lovers back to
Garrison Art Center's 51st annual Riverside Crafts Fair.

This is one of our largest annual fundraisers. Funds from the gate help keep our educational programs and exhibitons running, and our staff and building humming!  

This year, purchase your tickets ahead of time for speedy gate entry.  

Tickets will be sold in three-hour time slots, as our goal is to keep fair attendance balanced throughout the day to maximize safety for attendees, artists, and staff. If you cannot attend at your scheduled time, feel free to come at another time or the other day. Tickets can also be purchased at the gate.

We welcome back our long-participating artists and are also excited to welcome many new artists & craftspersons along with specialty food and beverage makers. Your purchases support these talented artists, which will be much appreciated after what was a challenging year for so many of them.

Garrison Art Center's Riverside Crafts Fair is one of the most well established high-quality crafts fairs in the region. Set on the edge of the Hudson River just an hour north of New York City in Garrison, New York. With majestic river views, the fair offers a truly exquisite spot to shop and is a premier event in the Hudson Valley for collectors of hand-made traditional and alternative craft. An intimate fair, this year featuring 50+ juried artists participate with furniture, photography, jewelry, gourmet food, glass items, textiles, fine art, ceramics, wooden utensils, tableware, and more. Visitors can take the train to the fair which is steps from the MTA Metro North Hudson Line. Free parking at the Metro North train station, plus a free shuttle service makes this a popular event for those who live near the river towns from NYC to Poughkeepsie. 

The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center willl also be open during the fair both Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm. Featured will be a solo show by mixed media artist Steve Rossi and a group show compiled of eight female artists curated by The Rule of Three.
