Since 1999, The Festival of Fine Craft has been our premier annual event and one of the most highly-rated shows in the Mid-Atlantic region. Named one of Sunshine Artist's 200 Best in 2022, this campus-wide event continues to grow in attendance,(consistently over 10,000) programming, and quality overall.

Approximately 150 exhibitors, ranging from new & emerging artists to masters in their mediums, are carefully selected by a jury of WheatonArts professionals and experienced staff artists. We take pride in maintaining an artist-friendly show with a high standard of quality and are continually working toward a balance of mediums, styles, and techniques.

WheatonArts provides convenient day-before setup, overnight security, booth sitters, and unequaled hospitality throughout the show. Lodging at reduced rates is offered to exhibitors at some nearby hotels. Open Studios, craft demonstrations, live music, exceptional food, and a variety of interactive activities add to the excitement, making the festival both entertaining and educational.  

Our comprehensive marketing plan includes extensive print, radio and electronic media campaigns, full-color publicity and year-long promotion through our other events and outreach programs.
