CHESTER, Vt. – The 45th annual Chester Fall Craft Festival will be held Sept. 21-22, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. The Victorian painted ladies lining the green in Chester, Vt. welcome over 60 vendors with unique items to their lovely lawn.

Handmade crafts include wood products, glass, jewelry, photography, watercolors, fiber arts, pottery, quilts, soaps, and more. Stroll through the quaint Stone Village, explore local shops and galleries, and sample a wide variety of interesting food. On Saturday, discover the Beer Garden behind the Fullerton Inn.

A Children’s Tent will have activities to entertain the little ones, and Cheryl the Clown will also provide some fun entertainment. Children can also play at the Chester-Andover Elementary School playground and visit the disc golf at the Pinnacle on Lover’s Lane.
