parks-rec-logo-2-jpegThe 38th Annual Herndon Holiday Arts and Crafts Show features vendors who create their merchandise by hand. The show will be held Sunday, December 4, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The Herndon Community Center, a public recreation facility, located at 814 Ferndale Ave., Herndon, features an indoor pool, fitness room, full-size gymnasium, preschool, and hundreds of recreation programs.

To be able to participate in this show, vendors submit an application with photos demonstrating the artist or crafter creating their art or craft. A panel of judges jury the vendors to ensure the show has high quality vendors and a wide variety of products. Many of these vendors have also attended the Herndon Festival and the Herndon Labor Day Festival.

You can expect to find vendors selling a large variety of handcrafted items and fine art. This year there will be 3D quilling art, one-of-a-kind crafted jewelry, re-crafted bowling pins, Christmas ornaments, decorations, doll clothes, photography, stained glass, greeting cards, and much more. Give a gift that warms the belly with delectable baked goods, jams, peanuts, and more. In addition, the Woman’s Club of Herndon will sell White House ornaments and are taking donations to support the Wreaths Across America program.
