Produced and sponsored by The Historic Chester Business Association this event is a nationally recognized community tradition and one of the largest craft shows in the state. The show features artisans from across the East Coast, representing a wide range of craft-working diciplines -home furnishing, decor, jewelry, clothing, wood and metal working and much more. These masterfuly crafted, handmade wares are of  the highest quality.

Although Chester is in many ways a contemporary suburban town, its streets, storefronts and farms still exude a quiet country 'home town' charm that's reminiscent of the past. In fact, you might say Chester offers "the best of both worlds" - a rich and fascinating historical heritage combined with the comforts and innovations of today.
