About Our Show

The 3rd annual Arts and Crafts Festival is being organized by the Agawam Community Artists and Artisans. This program is supported in part by two grants, one from the Agawam Cultural Council a local agency, and one from the Massachusetts Cultural Council a state agency. Their generous help has made the show possible.

There will be so much happening we can’t wait to get the party started. We are excited for all the events lined up. Browse the list below, and if you need more information please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Mosaic Project

New England Mosaic Project Patterned after the Florida Keys Connections Project (pictured above), our New England version invites local community artists and artisans to each create a 6x6 canvas to be used as a tile in the creation of a New England Themed Mosaic. The finished canvas “tiles” will be raffled off with net proceeds funding scholarships for local art students. Be a part of this exciting and charitable project.
