Our Plans for This Year
The 2020 Moretown Artisans’ Sale will TAKE PLACE ONLINE DUE TO COVID -19. Our goal is to allow everyone to shop in the safety and convenience of their homes and still support our area’s local artists. This is a first for us so we hope you like what we’re doing!
In 2002 a collective of Moretown Artists wanted to have an art sale right here in the village featuring artwork created in the 05660. And so on the second weekend in December, the inaugural Moretown Artisans’ Sale took place in the Moretown Town Hall. In 2008 the MAS was added under the organizing umbrella of Meg’s Events. In 2011 after Irene flooded the village, the event relocated to the Moretown Elementary School where we’ve been ever since.
Fast forward to 2019 the Moretown Artisans’ Sale has become a circle-on-your-calendar type of event, featuring a wide variety of artwork from artists residing in Moretown, the Mad River Valley and Vermont. With locally crafted gift ideas like jewelry, clothing, fine art, health & beauty products, gourmet foods and more, there’s something for everyone on your list.
Also featured at the event is a FREE Holiday Photo Booth with festive props and a visit from Santa on Saturday. On Sunday we have live local music from students and professionals. Both days also have delicious local food and a silent auction and raffle benefiting Hannah’s House.
The event is family friendly and there is plenty of convenient parking.

- It’s Helpful This year we will have a raffle and an auction to benefit Hannah’s House and their mission to help families of young adults who are, or have been, in emotional crisis find a sustainable path to emotional well being through the exploration of alternative ways of thinking and relating, and to provide tools of prevention for growing families.
- It’s Family Friendly The kids probably know this place better than you do! And they will love to see everyone’s favorite jolly fat man, SANTA! Sunday 11:30-1 in our FREE Photo Booth!
