Celebrating American Craftsmen 50th anniversary, 2021 was one of the most successful selling shows the event has had.

Check out the artisans attending here.

Seasonal Sips Bar
Saturday, June 4 & Sunday, June 5 at 12-5PM, Annex
We have missed two Niagara Wine & Beer Fests already because of COVID and we cannot possibly wait to see if next January allows for the event, so the Kenan Center is bringing you local wine & beer to American Craftsmen Weekend! Join us in the Annex for an array of local beer, cider and wine. $5 per glass that you can enjoy while shopping. Cheers!
