June 2 Dragon Art Fair, DeForest, WI
June 2, 2018
Market Street, Market St, DeForest, WI 53532, USA
The Dragon Art Fair is sponsored by the Dragon Arts Group, a 501c3 non-profit organization which raises funds for arts program scholarships by coordinating arts-related events throughout the year. An exciting side benefit of these events is that they provide an opportunity to showcase what the DeForest/Windsor area, “Madison’s North Star”, has to offer. The Dragon Arts Group works with other community groups to cross-promote the day’s events including the Cub Scout Ice Cream Social and the DeForest Area Historical Society. Our goal is to make this fair the one everyone, artists, guests, and volunteers are proud to say they were part of.
We love our Wisconsin Fans, it's where Stoneware Pottery began, we wish we could come up more often however the distance makes it difficult. If you are looking for anything in particular, please let us know and contact us to order it in advance. April 30 would be far enough in advance to make sure that we would have what you need ready by then, though if we have it in stock you can definitely order it and we can set it aside so to avoid the cost of shipping! Hope to see you there!
