Peters Valley Fine Craft Fair - Layton, NJ

This annual weekend event is one of the top Fine Craft Fairs in the nation! The event is held rain or shine at the Sussex County Fair Grounds (a fully accessible venue) and hosts 150 fine craft exhibitors selling handmade ceramics, leather, wearables, photography, glass, metal, jewelry, wood, and more.

Year after year, crowds from the tri-state area attend the Fine Craft Fair and enjoy a weekend of art and entertainment. Come out for a day of exciting artist demonstrations, great food, music by local musicians and the chance to shop for unique items with the added bonus of meeting the artists. Watch and learn how artists forge metal, blow glass, weave cloth, turn wood, carve sculptures, create jewelry and more. Kids can try their hands at a craft in our Kids Art Area.

The widely anticipated event has been running for over 45 years, and continues to be Peters Valley School of Craft’s largest fundraiser. Peters Valley is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering creative thinking through fine craft. The school relies on ticket sales from this event to support adult and teen workshops, bring artists to schools and offer a variety of creative opportunities on their campus. Peters Valley School of Craft is sought nationally for its programming.
