Capital Arts Fest (CAF) will take place in front of the Headquarters of the League of NH Craftsmen and the Capitol Center for the Arts from September 27th – 29th, 2019.  Hours will be 5-8 PM on Friday the 27th, 10 AM – 5 PM on Saturday the 28th and 10 AM – 4 PM on Sunday the 29th.  No admission fees.  Parking in city lots and on street as available.

The League is partnering with the City of Concord, the Concord Chamber of Commerce’s “Creative Concord Committee” and the Capitol Center for the Arts as we produce our second annual Capital Arts Fest!  This is a one-of-a-kind craft fair featuring the work of selected League juried members and invited artists.  Stroll Main Street and shop fine craft during the peak of the fall foliage season!

The Exhibition Gallery at League Headquarters will feature “Then and Now – How Far We’ve Come”, showcasing the early and recent work of our juried members – highlighting their personal journeys as craftsmen.  In addition, we are welcoming three guest artists for a special exhibit, “Journey – An Encaustic Exhibition”, which will feature the work of Emma Ashby, Fran Koenig and Wo Schiffman.  The Gallery will be open extended hours to coincide with the Capital Arts Fest.  Both exhibitions will remain open in the gallery through December 20, 2019.
