Annual Events Cycle

The first public event of the year is the Spring Porch and Bake Sale. This sales promotion is usually scheduled to occur around St. Patrick’s Day. At these sales, people can get a great deal on non-juried and student crafts, seconds, and more. This event typically begin by mid-March.

The Appalachian Arts Craft Center’s Annual Gala and Silent Auction fundraiser is also held in the spring each year. This is a fun event with wonderful music, excellent food, socializing, and an opportunity to purchase beautiful handmade crafts, fine arts, services, and other goodies.

The center also hosts its annual Plant Sale in the spring. Local plants that do well in this area will be for sale at very reasonable prices.

The Center also holds a Fall Porch and Bake Sale similar to the spring event. In 2011 the Fall Porch Sale starts in October–watch the home page for announced dates as the time approaches.

Our Holiday Open House is held during the Holiday Season. The Open House will be announced on the home page in November. Stop by for some holiday goodies and wonderful gift shopping.
