Some of the biggest arts and crafts festivals are coming, full of fall and holiday themes. And the first one of the season is almost here.

The Clinton Fine Arts & Crafts Festival is the first weekend in November - Saturday and Sunday, November 4-5, 2017. If you're from Clinton, you know exactly what this means - the school will be filled with vendors from all over the place, fine art, sculpture, pottery, household items and decorations, food, and crafts of all kinds. There's jewelry, clothing, books and tons of other hand crafted items. It happens every year and it's something you just HAVE to go to. For the rest of the region, it's the perfect opportunity to take a trip to this hidden gem of a village full of fine restaurants and shops, and also home to a truly world class Fine Arts and Crafts Festival.
