Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festival

Held every spring and fall near Harpers Ferry, this three-day event is one of the largest of its kind on the East Coast. Nearly 200 of the nation's outstanding craftspersons offer their work for show and sale. All work is juried for excellence in workmanship, design, and creativity. Categories of work are comprehensive, ranging from basketry to furniture to musical instruments to pottery to stained, beveled, etched, and blown glass.
