The show hours are: Fri., Oct.14, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 15, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sun., Oct.16, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“For four decades, the Morristown CraftMarket has received acclaim as a major cultural and charitable event not only in New Jersey but throughout our nation,” said Show Director Geoffrey Price, a member of the not-for-profit and all-volunteer Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township, which sponsors and runs the Morristown CraftMarket.
“The thousands of patrons who come each year to our show at the Morristown Armory know that we showcase extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine arts and crafts – all made in America by American hands – and that all our profits go to charities. The show has raised over 1.5 million dollars for local charities since it first opened to the public in 1977.”
The exhibiting artists will display and sell their original and magnificent creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, furniture, mixed media, wearable fiber and more.
The Morristown CraftMarket plans to host an Opening Night Reception on Fri., Oct. 14 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. The Reception will be open to adults who are at least 21 years old.
Big Brothers Big Sisters will be collecting gently used clothing items throughout the show. Receipts will be issued for tax-deductible donations of clothing items accepted at the collection truck located near the parking lot.
