Lancaster Fine Art & Craft Show Announcement!

ATTENTION! This is exciting news and truly long in coming. The LCAA is planning our first ever Lancaster Fine Art & Craft Show on October 12, 2024, from 9am-4pm.
The Art Show will be held at the Solanco Fairgrounds in Quarryville INSIDE, with no fear of rain dampening the show. Our event is a juried show which will accommodate 100 exhibitors.
Per Dot Stepenaski, Event Chair, this is a huge, involved undertaking by our group and we will need many hands-on decks! Why should you help? Because as the oldest art association in Lancaster County, that’s what members do! This will be the biggest fundraiser we host and will help us maintain our aging building and develop new programs for members.
How can you help? Perhaps the easiest to do is talk it up - this is the most exciting thing to happen to the southern part of Lancaster ever! Can you ask someone to sponsor our show with an ad? Now is the time to approach businesses before they commit their budget to a rival event. We anticipate having a great turn out and our ads are reasonably priced.
If you participate in the fair circuit, get ready to enter your work and let your fellow artists know about this great opportunity to show their paintings and crafts! When it comes to social media, our Facebook and Instagram will post updates and information on our Art Show - PLEASE SHARE the information and ask those folks to share it again! Networking is everything!
Together we can make the Lancaster Fine Art & Craft Show a success and make this show a yearly LCAA tradition.
Our Event Chair, Dot Stepenaski (that Tall Lady in the Hat), can be contacted at 717-917-3533 for more info about the show or volunteer opportunities. For immediate information about booth rentals and vendor opportunities, visit the Fine Art & Craft Show page here on the website. Emails inquiring about the show may be sent to fineartcraftshow@lcaaonline.org
