Pennsic Artisans' Row

Artisans' Row promotes a wide variety of Arts and Sciences. Whether you are an experienced Artisan or a Novice excited about a new activity, or would like to see what a craft is all about, there is a place for you on Artisans' Row.

Each day on Artisans' Row offers three topics with continuous demonstrations and displays, hands-on participation, sharing of ideas, and joyful camaraderie.

There will be so much to see and do! Stop by for fifteen minutes, an hour, or stay all day. It's up to you. We hope to be able to make your Pennsic even more fun, exciting and interesting.
