The Pine Strawberry Arts and Crafts Guild has been sponsoring three Arts and Crafts Festivals a year since 1980. The events are held over two days (Saturday and Sunday) on the holiday weekends around Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day.
The festival vendors and boutique exhibits are juried, a committee of Guild members examines photos of original work provided by prospective show participants. Only those applicants whose photos of their work meet Guild standards for quality and originality are invited to attend. All work must be handcrafted.
The successful applicants are invited to display and sell their work in over 80 booths at the Pine Community Center grounds. About 27 booths are located indoors and the rest are outside. Outside exhibitors provide their own optional shelters.
Admission is free to the public.
Show hours are:
8 am to 5 pm on Saturdays
8 am to 4 pm on Sundays
An added attraction, to vendors and buyers alike has been the early morning (starting at 8am) pancakes breakfasts that have been put on by various groups over the years. Currently, the Pancake Breakfast is provided by the MOUNTAIN VILLAGE FOUNDATION, a non-profit organization that takes care of Pine Families all year round.
Food and Beverages:
To add to the enjoyment of the festive weekends, there are other food and beverage vendors available to quench your thirst and appetite.
