Local artisans will showcase their works this Sunday at the annual Sunnyside Artists Crafts & Arts fair.
The event will take place on Nov. 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at its usual location inside Queen of Angels Church at 44-04 Skillman Ave, in the street-level parish hall.
More than 35 artists will present works for sale ranging from handmade jewelry, soaps, organic scents, photography, pottery, accessories, crochet, and more.
The event is free and open to all, with lunch and snacks provided by Senso Unico, one of Sunnyside’s newest restaurants. Lowery Wine & Liquors, meanwhile, will offer a free glass of wine to attendees for every art purchase.
Raffles will also be available at the event, and include prizes like wines and liquors, gift certificates from local stores, Thanksgiving turkeys, and even a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The popular event is in its 10th year, according to Sunnyside Artists, and typically sees hundreds of attendees throughout the day.
The annual event also sets aside a portion of table fees to be donated to local food pantries.
Sunnyside Artists was founded in 2007, and is a nonprofit made up of over 200 visual artists from the Woodside and Sunnyside area, along with 400 art supporters. The first event for the collaborative was a fine art fair show, with an crafts show later added on, as requested by the community.
The full lineup of artisans at the Sunday event are listed on the event flyer.
