WHAT TO BRING

Howard Alan Events and American Craft Endeavors welcomes both our artists and patrons to bring their dogs to our shows as long as your pet is friendly, gentle, well behaved, kept on a leash and most importantly has an appreciation for the arts. Items NOT allowed are: weapons coolers or glass containers, skates, skateboards, or in-line skates. All of our festivals are outdoor events and are subject to the effects of mother nature. It is recommended that you wear appropriate eyewear and sun protection. On inclimate weather days our fairs and festivals still go on, so pack an umbrella - and rest assured we’ll do our best rain dances to make the clouds move on!
