Are you ready to shop for the most unique, inspired gifts this holiday season?! Don’t miss our last local show of the year featuring over 450 talented artists and crafters sharing their latest work. Sugarloaf’s Gaithersburg Holiday show runs November 16 through 18 at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds -- just in time to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list!

Stroll among the booths of hundreds of artists and crafters showing top quality work. Shop at a leisurely pace taking time to chat with the artists about what inspires their work. Food stands, kids’ entertainment and friendly faces make these events a great place to refresh your spirits and maybe find those special gifts. If you’re a regular Sugarloaf fan, you’ll see your favorite artists and some new ones too.

These events are great fun on many levels - beautiful wares to admire and take home, delicious gourmet food (with free samples) and on-site live art demonstrations. Watch experienced artists and master craftspeople turn a lump of clay, block of wood or tube of glass into a museum-quality piece. You might go home with a pleasing home decor piece or some snazzy painted leather shoes or boots. But you could just as easily end the day with an idea for a side hustle of your own.

With the holidays right around the corner, let our specialty food vendors enhance your gatherings with artisanal cheese and sausages, gourmet vinegars and dressings, delicious soups, nut butters, coffee and more. Work your way through the sample stations and take home your favorites for the many get togethers in the months ahead.  

At Sugarloaf, you’ll always find gifts, apparel and food items you simply can’t get anywhere else. Check out the latest artist profiles above and plan your visit ahead or just dive in when you arrive. Order individual or group tickets online for the best discounts. Every ticket is valid for the whole weekend so come back the next day! Area hotels have special Sugarloaf rates. 

The show is conveniently located in the Maryland suburbs outside of Washington, DC.

Holly Day Fair

to Nov 4

Holly Day Fair

Booth number pending.

It’s hard to imagine that 50 years ago a group of local women came together and decided to host a small crafts fair fundraiser at St. John’s Episcopal Church here in Fayetteville! The fair now boasts over 22,000 shoppers, more than 200 vendors and raises over a quarter of million dollars each year, making it the largest gift and craft show in Eastern North Carolina! The Holly Day Fair has allowed the Junior League of Fayetteville to be one of the greatest community supporters of this city with a record of giving back over $5 million to our hometown. And we couldn’t have done it without the support of each of you who attend our Holly Day Fair.

Yes, we have come a long way since those days in the fellowship hall of St. John’s church, but the one thing that remains the same is our dedication to this community in making it a better place for us all to live. We look forward to seeing you at the 52nd Annual Holly Day Fair, November 1-4, 2018! Make sure to wear your comfortable walking shoes!
