Crafters Encouraged To Apply

The Shaker Hill Apple Festival will be taking place
on the beautiful grounds of an old Shaker village
on Shaker Hill Road in Alfred, Maine, on September
24 and 25, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The
York County Shelter Programs is sponsoring the
Second Annual Juried Shaker Hill Arts and Crafts
Fair at the Apple Festival. The jurying committee
of this arts and crafts fair is particularly interested
in applicants who work in quality nature-related crafts.   
Basketmakers, potters, fiber artists, painters,
spinners, weavers, blacksmiths, woodworkers,
woodcarvers, stone artists, quilters, and glass
artisans are strongly encouraged to apply.
Advertising for the fair is extensive and
attendance at last year's Shaker Hill Apple Festival
was very high as apple picking takes place
at Giles Orchards and many events are
scheduled at the Alfred Shaker Museum.
The Shaker Hill Apple Festival Arts and Crafts
Fair takes place rain or shine and parking and
admission to the fair are free.  A 10'x10' outside
booth is available to artisans for a $50 fee for both
days. A sample of the work and the contact
information of the various artists are posted
throughout the year on the Shelter's website and also on the
Shaker Hill Apple Festival website. To obtain
information about the craft fair and to access
an application, go to:
or contact Mary Doyle at 207-793-2759 or
email: All proceeds from the
Shaker Hill Apple Festival benefit the homeless
children of the York County Shelter Programs.
