What: 52nd Annual International Seaway Festival
When: July 21st & 22nd
Every year the festival draws not only from our surrounding communities, but also from all over the US.
This year the committee is bringing something new to the Seaway Festival. With the increased number of people enjoying wine, it was decided to bring wineries from northern NY to the Ogdensburg Seaway Festival for the first time.
On the 21st & 22nd of July, festival and Founders Day participants will not only have the opportunity to purchase locally made arts & crafts, but all locally grown vegetables, and sample wines from across northern NY.
This year the Seaway Festival starts off with the SEAWAY FESTIVAL WINE N CRAFT SHOW at the Richard Lockwood Civic Center. The hours for the show/farmers market will be 10am-4pm on Sat. And 10am-3pm on Sun. Set up will be on Fri. From 4-6pm.
Every show grows with not only the number of crafters attending, but also the number of individuals looking for that special gift for a loved on. The festivals craft show gives local crafters the chance to sell their handmade wares that consist of wooden benches, blankets, jewelry, baby clothes, and other novelty items. Every year there is something new.
At the present time the Seaway Festival has between 40-50 crafters attending with room for more. It's on a first come basis. Spaces are 10x10 with some having power. Please bring your own chairs, tables can be provided at $5 per table. Each crafter must have a NYS Tax License and will be responsible for collection of sales tax.
