The Riverdale Temple’s Artisan and Fair Trade Crafts Fair and Kids’ Arts-and-Crafts Family Fun Day, scheduled for Sunday, November 19, from 11:00 p.m. to 4 p.m., is the perfect local, one-stop shopping opportunity for quality, one-of-a-kind handmade holiday gifts– as well as a fun, out-of-the-house day of entertainment for families and kids.
Open to the public, the Fair and Carnival will be held at the Riverdale Temple, 4545 Independence Avenue, Riverdale, NY 10471. Admission and on-site parking are free.
The items for sale are one-of-a-kind. The carefully curated vendors at the Riverdale Temple crafts fair are all local New York area artisans or fair trade (Third World) crafters. Offerings will include handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, ceramics, woodworks and more. All the merchandise was carefully selected for high quality and holiday gift-giving appeal.
A crafting event for kids, which includes three different activities and includes instruction and all materials, will also be available for $5 per child. Adding to the fun for young and old will be a raffle, and a full array of snacks, baked goods, and beverages.
“Here is a fun way to support local artisans and global fair trade companies, as well as entertain the kids, and get a jump on holiday gift-giving,” said Dr. Rachel Radna, Co-President, Riverdale Temple. “This will be a day of excitement and safe, wholesome fun for the entire family.”
