From Virginia Highlands Festival Website:

The Virginia Highlands Festival Juried Arts & Crafts Show is now held on the lawn of the Barter Square located along Main Street situated between the Gilliam Stage at Barter Theatre and the Barter Stage 2 and adjacent to The Martha Washington Inn & Spa. The lawn is accessed by wide brick sidewalks and is ADA compliant. Unique festival food is available on site with restaurants close by. The Festival is easily accessed by Interstate 81.

The Juried Arts & Crafts Show focuses exclusively on fine arts and crafts, welcoming both established high quality seasoned artisans and new artisans exhibiting innovative concepts executed with the same high-quality attention to style and detail. With only 60 spaces, our goal is to curate the most diverse show possible.
