Mesa Arts & Crafts Festival Season Kick Off

Mesa Arts & Crafts Festival Season Kick Off

Saturday, October 1st 10am-4pm

Mesa Arts & Crafts Festival (MACFest) Organizing Committee has been busy this summer making plans for its ninth season. Join them for their season kick off on Saturday, October 1st. The Mesa Arts and Crafts Festival is a free event featuring unique artist creations, music, and fun for the whole family.

The festival features the work of established and emerging artists and crafters including woodworking, metal crafts, food items, jewelry, photography, handmade soaps, gift items, ceramics, and much more. MacFest will be held on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, October 2016 thru April 2017. The festival is located on N. MacDonald Street between Pepper Place and Main Street.

Music will be provided by small combo bands with acoustic instruments, including Peggy & Tim, Joel Parker, & April Ann. Dance groups and other performers from local schools and clubs are encouraged to perform their routines at the festival events.

Originally launched in 2008 to help downtown merchants during the height of the economic recession, Mesa Arts & Crafts Festival provides an affordable opportunity for emerging and established artists to sell their work to the public. Artists and crafters may register and rent a 10 ft. X 10 ft. exhibit space for $25.00 per event. The Organizing Committee is offering art students in Mesa’s local colleges and high schools the opportunity to sell their own creations at table displays on the raised curb areas free of charge. Artists under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
