The 4th Annual Orange Artisan Fest & Vendor Fair Set for June 20th

Save the date for the 4th Annual Orange Artisan Fest & Vendor Fair, scheduled on Thursday, June 20, 2024, from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Orange Fairgrounds at High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road, Orange. The all-outdoor event is rain or shine and free and open to the public. 

Visitors can look forward to a great mix of business and artisan vendors selling their products and services. There will also be product demonstrations, raffles, giveaways, food trucks, free activities, a dance performance, and the first town concert night of the season. Vendors will be available from 2:30 – 6:30 and the Sabb’s Brothers will perform from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Annemarie Sliby, Executive Director says, “We have a nice combination of business and artisans participating. Business vendors will be on hand in the fields of home improvement, finance, realty, insurance, healthcare, and senior care.  Artisan vendors will be selling their handmade items such as jewelry, sweets and baked goods, candles, embroidered items, framed art, and more. The event is a nice kick-off to the summer, and I would like to welcome the public and business population to stop by and shop, network, grab a bite, listen to the music, and enjoy the day.”  

Vendor space is still available in both categories of business and artisan. Anyone wanting to participate, please call the Orange Economic Development office at 203-891-1045. 

There will be many fun, free activites for adults and children, including:  Blood pressure checks provided by the Orange Visiting Nurse Association, rock painting provided by Milestones Behavioral Services, touch a truck provided by Baybrook Remodelers and United Illuminating, a dance performance provided by the Brennan-Lucey Irish Dance Academy.  More activites are being added as the event gets closer. Visitors should stop by the welcome table for a free event bag and an event program listing vendors and activities.
