Reduced admission fees benefit education programs

Now in its 46th year, Garrison Art Center’s Riverside Crafts Fair continues to support over 75 regional artists who remain devoted to making their wares by hand. A full 100 percent of admission proceeds help fund education programs and scholarships for students in need, from tots to seniors.

Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 15 and 16 on Garrison’s Landing, the Riverside Crafts Fair is unique in what if offers: a riverside location with Hudson River views; quality handmade crafts by regional artists for collectors and discerning buyers; and an eclectic food court with pulled pork and smoked brisket sliders, Middle Eastern and Mexican fare, lemonade, slushies, ice cream, watermelon juice and more.

This year, the admission price has been reduced to $5, and the fair is free for kids aged 12 and younger.

Free parking is available next door at the Garrison Metro-North train station.
