“It’s vintage marketplace meets modern makers.”
One of the loveliest traditions of our gatherings is a most enchanting extravaganza known as the SQUAM ART FAIR! This one-night-only event happens Saturday from 7:30-10:00pm and brings together some of the most talented artisans working today.
Saturday 17 September 2016
Tucked off the road in an exquisite woodland setting filled with strings of twinkle lights and ice lanterns, the fair has a wide range of gorgeous art and handcrafted wares including pottery, jewelry, stationery, textiles (vintage fabrics, exquisite hand dyed yarns and other delicious materials for you to create your own masterpieces), photography and mixed-media art. Because the Squam Art Fair is open to all, it has become an annual tradition for people to travel up to the lake for a night of magic in the woods.
If you do make the trip, please be sure to come up and say hi– we’d love to meet you!
