Craft Expo 2020 Cancelled

Most of you have probably heard that we had to cancel Craft Expo 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. That was a difficult (and heart wrenching!) decision, but it was clear that the government social distancing guidelines prohibiting large gatherings will likely remain in effect into the summer months. These restrictions greatly affect the planning and execution of this large, outdoor event.

This is an unprecedented decision for unprecedented times, as Craft Expo has been held continuously on the Guilford Green for over 60 years. It’s a great disappointment to us at the Guilford Art Center, and we know it is to our artists, patrons, supporters, as well as our community.

HOWEVER … we are working on ways to bring you the 2020 artists in a virtual way. So stay tuned for more information about that!

Craft Expo will return to the Guilford Green in July 2021. We look forward to gathering again to celebrate art and our creative community!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Our dedicated Exec Director, Maureen Belden reports that she hasn’t had to write this many thank you notes since her wedding. But she is doing it happily!!!
