Please join us at Plowshares Craftsfair on December 3-4 at Nottingham High School (3100 E. Genesee St., Syracuse – map). Central New York’s premier multicultural craftsfair, Plowshares celebrates a world where people enjoy their work and have control over it. With 130 area craftspeople and community groups, it is a marketplace of ideas and beautifully diverse, hand made items.

More than a craftsfair, it is a peace festival, with music, food and a spirit of fellowship, creating a weekend of grassroots commerce and community. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect at year’s end with old and new friends and share in the life of a village marketplace that has no corporate headquarters.
We need this always, but especially this year.

Download the beautiful flyers (8.5×11 flyer, four to a page handouts).
Check out the Silent Auction and raffle items
Delight in the food menu
Enjoy a full slate of entertainment, including music and dance, throughout the day
If you’ve never been, watch a 2-minute walk through a small piece of Plowshares (2014)
