Sunnyside Artists will host its tenth annual craft fair Sunday with work from 35 local artisans for sale.

The popular, free-admissions event will take place from 9:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. at Queen of Angels Church Parish Hall, located at 44-04 Skillman Ave.

The fair includes a variety of works from local artists such as 3-D prints, photography, drawings, wood carvings, zines, jewelry and textiles. It also has raffles up for grabs, including a three-month membership to Phyzique Gym and a gift certificate from DeMole Restaurant.

All art purchasers will receive a complimentary glass of wine, donated by Lowery Liquors, while supplies last. Light food by Firefly Le Petit Bistro will also be for sale.

Organizers said they had such high interest from vendors this year that they had to create a waiting list.

“We had double the number of entrants this year,” said Sunnyside Artists president Manny Gomez. “We started a waiting list.”

A portion of the proceeds from table fees will be donated to local food pantries.

Sunnyside Artists was founded in 2007 and is made up of more than 200 visual artists from the Woodside and Sunnyside area, along with 400 art supporters. Its annual craft fair sees hundreds of attendees each year.

The organization is a non-profit, run by volunteers.

“Sunnyside Artists wants to bring local artists to local people, and vice versa, in a festive way,” said Sunnyside Artists Vice President Kris Czerniachowicz. “Volunteers make it happen.”

The full lineup of artisans at the Sunday event are listed on the event flyer.
