With the 2020 Spring Arts & Crafts Festival only one week away from the current Lake Lure stay at home in place, for the safety and health of our volunteers, vendors and patrons, the 2020 Lake Lure Arts & Crafts Festival has been CANCELLED. Given the uncertainty surrounding the virus, this was necessary.
This was a very difficult decision for us to make. The Festivals have been in continuous operation for over 30 years. This is the single biggest fundraiser for Hickory Nut Gorge Outreach, the Food Pantry that sponsors the Festivals. We will have a hard time replacing this lost income, but again, for the safety of volunteers, vendors, and patrons, this was the right decision. Postponing the Spring Festival was not an option, given many other conflicts.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Autumn Festival."
Let me know if you have any questions.
Stay safe & healthy.
Hickory Nut Gorge Outreach
Lake Lure Arts & Crafts Festivals
Hickory Nut Gorge Outreach, (the local charitable organization that provides food and other needed assistance to folks and families in the “Gorge” area) is holding its 2020 Spring Arts and Crafts Festival in beautiful downtown Lake Lure, NC across from the beach surrounded by the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. These festivals started over 30 years ago and have become major, signature community events that showcase the cultural heritage of “mountain art and fine craft making." We hope you’ll join us as a vendor for these wonderful events!
