While it's still cold, gray and windy, we have spring on our minds! We're dreaming of bright warm sunny days, iced tea on the porch, community gatherings, and smiling faces. We're anxious for the days when when downtown Shepherdstown is buzzing with activity with runners, cyclists, musicians, students gathering at the wall , locals sharing stories in front of the Sweet Shop, the Farmer's Market, shop owners dressing their shop windows, and tourists discovering our town's unique shops and eateries. Many folks are anticipating the start of festival season with Panhandle Earth Day, Shepherdstown StreetFest and the Contemporary American Theater Festival quickly approaching!
Well, here is one more event to bring you into town! The Shepherdstown Community Club is sponsoring the 1st Weekend Handmade Market. The Handmade Market begins in the first weekend in April and continues until the first weekend in November. We will bring you a diverse array of juried arts and crafts that are handmade by the seller. The Handmade Market will bring more folks into the downtown area to discover local artists and crafters, shop with local boutiques and stores, enjoy the local restaurants, experience the vibrant community, and honor the history in Shepherdstown.
The Shepherdstown Community Club supports many civic events, cultural activities, and social gatherings as well as public facilities such as the War Memorial Building and Morgan Grove Park. The Handmade Market, will help support local artisans and crafters, enrich the local economy, and contribute to the local community by ensuring that these important facilities are well maintained and available for use. We hope you join us in our extensive celebration of handmade arts, crafts and community!
