Ralph Zollers of Trappe, Pa. shapes a hand-crafted wooden bowl that will be on display at the Holiday Festival of Fine Art and Handicrafts at the Ocean City Music Pier on Nov. 11 and 12.
The annual Holiday Festival of Fine Art and Handicrafts comes to the Ocean City Music Pier on the weekends of Nov. 11-12 and Nov. 18-19. More than 75 fine artists, photographers and artisans will display and sell their works from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Hand-crafted items of every description from Christmas trees and ceramics to American Doll clothes and jewelry will be offered.
“We require that every piece be made in America,” Show Director JoAnne Schaut says. “It must be offered by the person in the booth who created it and is on hand to answer any questions.”
A $3 admission fee benefits the Ocean City Food Cupboard, the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and aid for Puerto Rico. In 16 years, Jersey Shore Artisans Guild events have raised $364,507 for local charities, according to Schaut. For dealer information, call (609) 365-2239. On show days, call (609) 399-6111.
