Need a special gift? Something unique and distinctive for your home or cabin?
Look no further than the Autumn Festival – An Arts & Crafts Affair, which returns to Canterbury Park from Thursday, Nov. 8 through Sunday, Nov. 11.
Each year, the artists and crafters work to create something new and different to showcase, keeping the selection fresh for customers, according to Jim Huffman, part of the team that organizes the festivals.
“Many of these exhibitors travel extensively, so are only in each city when they are invited to show at our festivals,” Huffman said, adding that they also often discuss their creative inspiration with guests during the event.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase during the festival, and there will be hourly drawings for $30 gift certificates, as well as entertainment.
• Thursday and Friday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
• Saturday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
• Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
