Outdoor Crafts Fair Returning Soon to Lincoln Center Under New Leadership

Crafts for sale at Lincoln Center.

A craft fair is coming back to Lincoln Center early next month, under a new company’s management. The new fair is “a revival” of the show that went on for 40 years, and will feature 150 artisans, according to Artrider Productions.

It will be held on June 2 from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and June 3 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. in Damrosch Park, the plaza on the South end of the Lincoln Center campus bordering 62nd Street.

“This re-envisioned craft show will highlight both perennial favorites and many new makers who have never-before been seen at this location. Adventurous shoppers and discerning collectors can find wearable art such as clothing, jewelry and handbags; home decor such as photography and fine art; as well as functional and sculptural works in ceramics, glass, metal, wood, mixed media and more. In addition, the show will include a small batch gourmet foods and specialties boutique.”

The fair comes at a time when Upper West Siders have had fewer crafts fairs to choose from.

      Not just UWS’ers but also the Bridge-and-Tunnel crowd.

      The ladies relish the chance to get all “fuh-pitz” and spend an afternoon in “THE CITY” so they can boast about it to their friends at the weekly mah-jong/canasta fest.

      The men dutifully follow them around, and then later score points with “the guys” grousing about parking-garage fees, how crowded are city streets, and how many “different-looking” (i.e. non-white) people inhabit the city.

      I used to go to these fairs almost 50 yet as ago!
      Too bad I do t live in the city any more.
      I enjoyed the fairs around the perimeter of the Natural History Museum too.

      Lincoln Center is in dire need and help in a renovation badly and leadership change is a disaster it has been in the last 15 years. I stopped going there in 2011. I laughed my ass off when they change the name from Avery Fisher Hall to David Geffen Hall (there goes the neighborhood) please give me a break…what a total disaster and not one thing was done in the interior of the auditorium in over 50 years. What a disgrace that place looks like.
