The 83rd Annual Craftsmen’s Fair – Ready. Set. Wow!


Prepare to be Amazed!

Creativity, function, and inspiration can all be found in one place — the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair.
For 9 days in August, the Mount Sunapee Resort is the site of an amazing fairground of white tents with exceptional handmade craft by over 200 master artisans. If you love art, craft, anything handmade, nature, food, music, and fun, this is the place to be! See an incredible variety of fine craft, meet the artists, and find something fabulous to take home. Explore awe-inspiring craft exhibitions. Watch a demonstration for an intimate, inside look at how fine craft is made. Or take a workshop and make your own fine craft under the guidance of a master craftsman.

Bring the kids — there’s workshops and fun activities designed just for them. And stay tuned for more details about a special Children’s Day at the Fair (Wednesday, August 10).

See the historic Peppersass Cog Railway train engine, the first mountain climbing cog railway engine in the world, which is celebrating its 150th birthday! This display is presented by the Mount Washington Cog Railway, the Fair’s lead sponsor. The train was handcrafted in New Hampshire and is a product of 19th century technology and modern innovation.

We are all about handmade, so this year we have a new Tasting Tent that will feature scrumptious New Hampshire-made products available for your sampling pleasure.

And to enhance the experience, we have an incredible line-up of musicians that will get your soul stirring!

Come join us on August 6-14!
