Each year, dozens of local artist vendors from New Castle and the surrounding areas bring their handmade creations to the Arts on the Riverwalk Festival for our annual Artisan's Market. Visitors can browse one-of-a-kind jewelry, pottery, portraits, soaps and so much more, scoring unique, handmade art that can't be found anywhere else. The Artisan's Market is more than just a place to shop, but a chance for local artists to display their talent and promote small businesses.
For the 4th Annual Arts on the Riverwalk Festival, we are happy to announce a record number of participating artists, bringing a variety of creations from ceramics, jewelry, glass, portraits, knitted goods and many other unique items to the market. And the best part? They're all handmade by local artisans and crafters so you know you're supporting a real person by purchasing. You can talk directly to the artists themselves, which makes buying something homemade that much sweeter once you understand the time and effort behind it. Each piece of art that you purchase from a local artisan or crafter carries with it hours of labor and a lifetime of passion.
All of our talented artists are sure to bring the best quality products for visitors to purchase. Below are just a few examples of what you can expect from the Artisan's Market.
...and so much more!
