Looking for a beautiful, sunny, fun-filled day for the entire family? You are sure to find a dream of a day for all when you come to the Village of Great Neck's 30th Annual Crafts Fair on Sunday, May 4, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., up and down Middle Neck Road in the Old Village. Sponsored by the Village of Great Neck and presented by Showtiques Crafts, Inc., this is touted to be the "number one best attended one-day event on Long Island."
The Old Village's Crafts Fair is always a great success. Be there on Sunday, May 4 for a fun day for the entire family.
And it's all free! There is no admission charge for a wonderful day at the fair!
Village of Great Neck Deputy Mayor Mitchell Beckerman, chair of the event, proudly announced that there will be even more vendors than last year. Well over 150 "quality" exhibitors are expected to offer their special wares. Beautiful artwork, photography, jewelry, fiber art, wooden art objects, pottery and a whole host of unique crafts will be on display, for sale. As ever, there will be unique handmade clothing for all ages and a wide selection of gifts for all occasions. The Crafts Fair is always a great choice for shopping for Mother's Day (the very next weekend), Father's Day, graduations, and so many other special occasions.
And the fun doesn't stop with shopping! Along with the wonderful arts and crafts, enjoy music, food and special fun events for the children. For the little ones, once again there will be free pony rides and a petting zoo, once again sponsored by the village. For the children, and their parents and grandparents, there will be displays and presentations from the village's two fire departments, the Alert Fire Department and the Vigilant Fire Department. Fire trucks and ambulances will be available for "tours."
New this year the Great Neck Music Conservatory, located right on Middle Neck Road in the Old Village, will present special musical performances in the gazebo on the Village Green. This is definitely a much-anticipated addition to the highly popular fair.
Hungry? Lunch? A snack? Just plain thirsty? Look no further than the great assortment of food vendors set up at the fair. A large variety of different types of foods will round out a perfectly lovely afternoon.
The fair goes from Fairview Avenue to Hicks Lane, along Middle Neck Road, and includes the Village Green.
Showtiques calls this event "the shopping experience of the year."
Mitch Beckerman promises "A great day and a great time for all!"
