Second Annual Festival Event Will Feature Local Vendors & More on December 14th
Shop for holiday gifts for family & friends with vending by fine artists, creatives & crafters, plus enjoy live music. Choose from ceramics, ornaments, jewelry, knitwear, original artwork & more.
While shopping, warm up at the gourmet hot chocolate bar, plus sample food vending by Jerome Richardson of Rich’s Backyard BBQ. Then, don’t forget to top it off with dessert made by Theresa Mendez of Moonflower Macarons. The Art Council will have themed gift basket raffles (need not be present to win) including a kid’s craft basket, a barista basket, a piece from Mackenzie-Childs, Ltd., a New Year’s Eve fun basket and original artwork from local artist Anne Lahr.
The Syracuse Chapter of the Urban Sketchers will be capturing the grand beauty of the historic Case Mansion beginning at noon, and will then have their sketches on display. With more than 200 chapters worldwide, Urban Sketchers connect people to sketch together, taking what can be a solitary activity and turning it into a social one.
