Williamsport’s Annual HomeMade Days Arts & Crafts Show will be Friday, June 21st from 10 a.m. til 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 22nd from 9 a.m. til 5 p.m., in our beloved and historic Brandon Park in Williamsport. Please see the show application on this page which is due Friday, May 31, 2019, being all that is needed to confirm your entry in this year’s event, and is open to all artisans, craftsmen, and photographers!
The purpose of HomeMade Days is to expose and educate both students and individuals of the region to Art in all forms, as well as provide an event for artisans to display and sell their wares to a regional base of art lovers! We are looking to evolve and grow as a show, but stay true to our mission and original concept of all things handcrafted or “HomeMade” as we say. The annual arts & crafts show draws in an estimated 8,000-10,000 visitors in recent years during the two-day event each June. In addition to the arts & crafts, visitors of all ages enjoy musical entertainment and a large variety of food vendors. Keeping the artisans in mind, we aim to make set up and tear down as stress free as possible, with easy access and ample parking nearby. And, advertising is TOP priority, asking all participants to spread the word near and far; using ONLY shared posts from the City of Williamsport Recreation Department or Brandon Park “official” Facebook pages.
