Whether celebrating the Easter holidays, Spring, or a day off from housecleaning, take a break on Sunday, March 29th, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Spring Artisan Fair at historic Tarrywile Mansion, 70 Southern Boulevard, Danbury, CT.
Shop for creations from Connecticut’s finest artisans while supporting Friends of Tarrywile Park, a private non-profit run by volunteers to support the preservation and enhancement of over 700 bucolic acres of pristine open space. Unique and one of a kind gift ideas for the Easter Basket, someone special or even a treat for you will be displayed throughout the rooms of Danbury’s prized Victorian mansion, the centerpiece of Tarrywile Park. A donation of $5 at the door includes a complimentary Friends of Tarrywile tote bag to carry home your treasures.
This year, returning artisans include Rabbit Hill Collectibles, with hand painted wooden eggs by Lisa Defeo and chalkware Easter rabbits by Kathleen McDonald. Also featured: Primitive folk art by Old Green Road, Goatboy Soaps, handmade jewelry by Gemini Dream, bath products by Sensational Scrubs, hand turned wood pens by George Toro. Handmade greeting cards, birdbaths, wind chimes, savory herb blends, Spring wreaths, centerpieces and much more round out the Fair’s offerings.
Be sure not to miss Joan Pollak Art and her amazing work of hand painted driftwood animals, sure to peak your imagination, from dinosaurs to farm animals. Artist Gillian Grozier of Casspi Design will do a talk at 1:30 pm about the inspiration for her original illustrations. Light refreshments will be available from My Chef to Go of Brookfield.
