28th Fall Crafts event comes to Lyndhurst
Anyone looking to add a little decoration to their lives should head over to the Fall Crafts event at Lyndhurst this weekend. Around 15,000 people are expected to visit the Tarrytown event, now in its 28th year.
“I believe that our commitment to bringing the highest quality, most unique, American hand-made work ... to Westchester is what has made this event so popular,” said Laura Kandel, the assistant director at Artrider Productions, the company that runs the event. “We have such a wide variety of work that there is something for everyone.”
The event kicked off Friday morning at 10 a.m. and runs through the weekend. From bronze sculptures small enough to fit in the palm of your hand to furniture adorned with birds and bridges to steel jewelry that is “light as a feather and intricate as lace,” Kandel says the creations, brought in from more than 275 vendors from across the country, will be varied and unique.
Two performances by the Arm-of-the-Sea Puppet Theater will entertain the kids on Saturday and Sunday and an expanded food area will feature specialty dishes available for purchase. Lyndhurst Mansion, a work of art in its own right, will serve as the backdrop.
Tickets for the event are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $4 for children 6 to 14 years old.
