Shop local at the Town’s first outdoor craft fair and makers market in the Town Library parking lot on Saturday, September 11 from 10-1. Interested vendors may sign up at a link on the Town’s website.
The craft fair is the last in the Town’s Second Saturday Series, designed to offer free family fun in the center of Town. The series was hosted jointly by the Human Services, Library, and Recreation Departments.
“These free, family friendly events are such an important opportunity to bring our residents together as we emerge from the pandemic,” said First Selectman Beth Heller. The events are part of the First Selectman’s Town Center Beautification Plan to make the Town Center Campus a more active and attractive place.
In May there was a chalk art party, followed by a tag sale in June and the Friends of the Library book sale in July. In August, the Celebrate Art! event was canceled due to weather.
In addition to the fair vendors, parts of the Celebrate Art! – a free craft supply swap and community art project – will be available at the craft fair along with lawn games, Silver Sands pizza truck and coffee and pastries from Café Rebelde.
The community art project will form a positive message on the fence surrounding the Woodbridge Town Library’s air conditioning unit. The message will be created from decorated and laminated index cards. Residents are asked to depict something on the card that they love about Woodbridge. Cards may be picked up at the Senior Center, Library or Town Hall and dropped off once completed. Cards will also be available for decoration at the event. During the event they will be laminated and added to the fence.
