We are breathing new life into an old favorite.
Howard Alan Events is heading indoors! We are excited to announce our 2021 roster will include four highly established indoor shows held in two well-known venues, formerly produced by Sugarloaf. Plus, a show in November at a third venue will be announced shortly! 
When one door closes, another always opens, and Howard Alan Events is opening the doors to Gaithersburg, Maryland for spring and fall, 2021. For over 40 years, the spring and fall festivals in Gaithersburg have descended on the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, bringing hundreds of fine artists and crafters together with a loyal following of patrons. We are proud to be able to continue the tradition.
Howard Alan Events proudly announces a new set of standards in art and craft shows to The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. It is with great pride that we carry on this tradition that has continued for more than 30 years. The Philadelphia area attracts affluent patrons and educated art lovers and we are excited to be a part of the long-standing tradition.
We want to welcome all of the former Sugarloaf artists and crafters to apply to the shows, as we know you are an essential reason the events have been successful.
As we move into 2021, we will continue our cancellation policy for events cancelled due to COVID-19. In the event that the show is canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis, we will continue to offer a credit or refund for show fees or deposits.
We understand the devastation caused by the sudden closure of Sugarloaf. Please call us for information on what we are doing to help the artists and crafters who have lost so much. We are in this together, and together we will prosper and come back stronger.
We can't wait to welcome you to the Howard Alan family of artists and crafters.
