Fall Crafters Fair
Dozens of vendors all featuring HANDMADE and ARTISAN items under one roof! Visit the annual Fall Crafter’s Fair (usually the first week in October) to stroll down aisle after aisle of unique items you can’t find in the big box stores. Not to mention several food vendors, live entertainers and activities for kids. It’s one of our biggest annual events and it supports the local artisans and makers that help make Shipshewana special.
Shipshewana hosts an annual fall festival of crafters, artisans, Amish makers, vintage sellers, entertainers and musicians. The event is planned for families and individuals looking for something truly unique and different from normal weekend routines. Autumn is a GREAT TIME to check out Shipshewana and see all the amazing items produced here.
The festival is usually held the beginning of October and is a tribute to the crafting and old-fashioned culture in the surrounding Shipshewana countryside. Quilters, carvers, painters, blacksmiths, musicians and crafters of all types will flood the town and its many quaint stores, providing demonstrations and entertainment on both Friday and Saturday.
“The Shipshewana Fall Crafters Fair is a long standing event with a proven record of bringing in some of the most unique and interesting crafts, performers and food around. It is an event that has become an annual pilgrimage for people all around, as they experience the lovely little town of Shipshewana and all the area has to offer.” says Jeff Fought, Marketing and Event Director at the MEC.
