(Saturday 10-5; Sunday 10:30-4:30)

 

Plowshares is Central New York's premiere multicultural craftsfair, featuring over 120 local craftspeople and community organizations.

A beautiful community of activists, conscientious consumers and fair traders gather for a weekend of commerce and communing at the Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festival. Plowshares is an opportunity to step into the kind of world we’re working so hard to create: a place of justice, of peace, of compassion, of environmental sustainability. Plowshares is a labor of love that comes together thanks to the help of many volunteers.

Currently, we remain unsure if we will be able to have the craftsfair in person. We are still awaiting word on use of the space and exploring alternative location options. There is also the issue of health implications of holding a large gathering. If we cannot hold a normal craftsfair, we intend to again offer a virtual version as we did last year; information on this option will be communicated separately when the time comes.

However, we are remaining hopeful as well as proactive, and have decided to plan as if things were proceeding as they normally would. Which all leads to...we are now accepting crafter applications for the 2021 show!

New! Download the 2021 application (PDF) for craftspeople and community groups.

Application deadline: Monday, June 14, 2021.

Applications must be mailed (postmarked) by the deadline. We cannot take dropoffs at the office this year. Please note that applications postmarked after the deadline are placed on a waiting list. Payment must be included with your application (check or money order only--no electronic payment).

For questions, please contact us or send an e-mail to plowshares@peacecouncil.net.
