Just this past summer i had alot of fun with local craft fairs. I had a booth at woodland Christian Church Art fair, The Artist Market and Museum-Go-Round (which i will be to old to do next year unfortunately.) I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for some other craft booth type events in the Lexington region?
I am trying to plan ahead for the upcoming season, any tips, questions, or suggestions would be very appreciated!

I can give you a few for Winchester and surrounding counties which isn't too far. These are coming up soon but there's always next year and it also gives you a chance to check it out to see if it's something you'd want to do. I don't know if some of these have booths you can rent but it's always worth a shot. I also don't know if any of them require specialized crafting like the Horse Fest.

I used to live in Berea and they have craft fairs all the time. In October there's also Constitution Square Festival in Danville. That's pretty much all I know about.
