The American Craft Week is a national celebration of all things artisan created. It began 7 years ago with a simple idea – an organized effort with all makers and teachers of American craft to raise awareness of fine arts and crafts, both locally and nationally, and the positive impact it has on economics, community, and heritage. The “support local” movement has created an environment for artists and craftspeople to impact their communities like never before.

Venues can be found in areas such as Carlisle, New Cumberland, Mechanicsburg, Boiling Springs, Enola, and Camp Hill.

“Visitors can expect to see craft demonstrations such as pumpkin carving, chocolate making, lost wax casting, trunk shows, kids craft, weaving, engraving, altered books, music and art exhibits,” tells Douglas Koozer, Gallery Owner at Cumberland Valley Arts.
