COOPERSTOWN – If you’re looking for something to do this Labor Day weekend, the Cooperstown Artisan Festival could be the perfect family fun event for you.
Local artists and crafters will be on hand with everything from hand-blown glass, to iron-made goods, to pottery, knitwear, paintings and more. There will also be food vendors and live music.
The festival will be held 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on the upper part of Main Street in Cooperstown.
Organizers say there’s plenty to see and do in Cooperstown.
“That's what we want to make sure people understand is that Cooperstown isn’t just baseball, it's not just summer,” said Matt Hazzard, executive director of the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce. “We have such a strong artisan group in central New York and anytime that we can take an opportunity to celebrate that, and really showcase their skill set, I think it's a win for everybody.”
You can find parking on residential side streets or the Red Trolley parking lot.
