Sugarloaf Craft Festival comes to the Dulles Expo Center

Kids' show in 2009
Every year the Sugarloaf Craft Festival comes to the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va. 

Whether you're looking to do some holiday shopping, are interested in the arts and craftsmanship, want to do some holiday shopping or looking to do something fun with the family, the Sugarloaf Craft Festival might be just what you're hoping to find. 

This show seems to grow every year. Last I went there were 250 artists, but for 2015 it is advertised there will be more than 300 artists from all over the United States, many of which are very well-known local artists. The expertise visitors will get the opportunity to see firsthand includes ceramics, metal spinning, wood turning, culinary arts and more.

Many artists who will be showcasing their work have exhibited in galleries and museum shows. This artists' marketplace has lots of great things happening throughout the weekend on their schedule. For instance, visitors can enjoy a variety of family entertainment and learning which include demos, live musical performances, and children's activities. There's even a puppet show put on by Middle Earth Studios.

This year's Sugarloaf Craft Festival takes place on Dec. 11, Dec. 12 and Dec. 13. Friday and Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For pricing and coupons please see this festival page.

The Dulles Expo Center is conveniently located off Route 28 (not too far from I-66 - a couple of miles) and the address is 4320 Chantilly Shopping Center, Chantilly, Va. 20151.
