You can support both environmental education and local artists at this upcoming event. On May 17, 10am-5pm Artful Events and EARTH Ltd are holding an Artisan Faire here at Southwick’s Zoo. Browse one of a kind jewelry, artwork, pottery, and much more. This is a great opportunity to find unique gifts! There will also be a raffle table with items donated by the participating crafters.
There is still some time for interested artists to apply a spot at the event. Click HERE to learn more. The deadline to submit an entry is April 30.
The Faire will be held in the large white tent outside of Southwick’s Zoo. Admission to the zoo is not necessary to enter the Artisan Faire and there is also no fee to enter the tent.
A portion of the proceeds will go towards EARTH Ltd. If you aren’t aware of this non-profit you should check them out! They provide Southwick’s Zoo with a number of educational programs such as ZooMobiles and Junior Zookeeping. Next time you are in the zoo stop by the EARTH Discovey Center to catch a live animal presentation and learn more about EARTH!
