Arts & Crafts Fair
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.The Arts & Crafts Fair, which runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., is a highlight of the family-focused Raspberry Festival. Every year, more than 3,000 attendees shop at the event for unique, handmade crafts and gifts.
Vendors are responsible for their own tables and tents and are asked not to sell bread or raspberry products, as those are specialty items sold by the Benedictine Sisters. Each year, a limited batch of raspberry wine is crafted exclusively for the festival; as well as homemade raspberry jam, vinegar, popcorn, shortcake and more.
