The University of Wisconsin-Parkside celebrates summer on Saturday, June 28, 2014, with its annual Arts and Crafts Festival. The campus becomes a colorful marketplace with approximately 200 artisans offering unique handmade pieces. Proceeds from the event benefit UW-Parkside music scholarships.
Items to be found during this year's Arts and Crafts Festival include handmade doll clothing, custom woodworking, ceramics, pottery, stained glass, air-brushed clothing, soaps and gels, outdoor decorations, braided rugs and much more. Vendors from throughout the region, from every corner of Wisconsin and from as far away as Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, Ohio and Illinois also will display their wares.
Admission to the festival grounds is free and music is performed throughout the day. Food will be available.
