The annual Old Creamery Arts and Crafts Show in Rice will take place from 8 a.m-5 p.m. on both Saturday, Sept. 12, and Sunday, Sept. 13.
It’s one of the biggest outdoor craft shows in the state and attracts thousands of people from a wide area.
This year, there will be 140 exhibitors offering a wide range of home-crafted items: ceramics, jewelry, wood carvings, photography, sewn items, tapestries and much more. Demonstrations will include chainsaw sculpting, tapestry-making and music.
There will be lots of food, including the Rice Boy Scouts grilling and serving pork chops, the Rice Lions ice-cream stand, the ever-popular Kettle Corn stand, and burgers and nachos served by the Old Creamery Café, which is right next to the craft show north of Rice’s main street just off of Hwy. 10. There is plenty of free parking available for the event.
The show is coordinated by Mark Larson, owner of Old Creamery, and his son, Nathan.
