PREMIER DANBURY ARTISAN STREET FAIR

CULTURAL ALLIANCE OF WESTERN CONNECTICUT & CITYCENTER DANBURY

PRESENT 1ST DANBURY ARTISAN STREET FAIR

ON MAIN STREET, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

 “There is something deeply satisfying in shaping something with your hands...like a song made solid. It is an act of creation.” 

― novelist, Patrick Rothfuss

From artisanal chocolate to handmade jewelry, tabletop sculpture, miniatures for the dollhouse, and more, the premier Danbury Artisan Street Fair promises an end-of-summer shopping spree that will delight the entire family. The Danbury Artisans Street Fair, featuring twenty creators of original work from Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey, will take place on Saturday, September 23rd, 11:00am to 5:00pm, on Danbury's Main Street between White and West Streets. Main Street merchants will also offer discounted goods and Fair specials in front of their shops, creating a festive and colorful, people-watching event that will surely celebrate the arrival of the Fall season.

"Our goal is to produce a show that provides each exhibitor the opportunity to show his or her talent in an urban setting and to its best advantage, to support the purchase of original fine art and hand-made craft, and to foster art appreciation," says PJ Prunty, CityCenter Danbury's Executive Director. Lisa Scails, Executive Director of the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, adds "There's lots of excitement already from participating vendors and merchants about this event. We are pleased to present this festive event with CityCenter Danbury for the community and visitors, and most importantly, we're planning lots of fun."

Presented by the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and CityCenter Danbury, the Danbury Artisan Street Fair is sponsored by Union Savings Bank and Danbury Cultural Commission. Production partners include Sofar Danbury, Workspace Collective, Danbury Parking Authority, Chris Plaisted Design, New Fairfield Press, and The City of Danbury. The Artist Green Room is supported by Hat City Market and Mothership on Main Bakery & Cafe.

With affordable, quality handmade art and craft, Indie Music produced by Sofar, an art display hosted by Danbury Music Centre, Food Trucks, and games for the kids, the Danbury Artisan Street Fair is a weekend must-do. Parking is available nearby at the Bardo Garage, 10 Library Place. For more information and to volunteer, call (203) 798 0760 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
