This little jewel-box craft fair is located on a gentle hillside among historic buildings surrounded by Jacaranda and Eucalyptus trees. An iconic upcountry tradition for more than 40 years, the 44th Annual Seabury Hall Craft Fair takes place the Saturday before Mother’s day on the sprawling Seabury Hall campus. The amazing variety of handmade crafts, local food, live music, and activities for all ages makes this a community favorite.
I have personally attended this event every year since 2010. It’s my favorite fair and the location makes it the perfect place for enjoying the pleasant spring colors and cool temps. The rummage sale reminds me of the flea markets I grew up with and is not to be missed. The main entertainment stage has a huge tent and plenty of tables to enjoy the live music and fresh prepared food that’s available just steps from the entertainment tent.
Ok, I’ll admit here that I am particularly fond of the desserts and fresh baked goods available near the second entertainment stage. First thing when the doors open I head there to get a cup of hot cocoa (shhh, don’t tell anyone). From there I browse the silent auction items and meander through the artist and crafter booths. It’s a day-long stroll among the gentle breezes and friendly faces that make me feel a part of the community.

Thanks for sharing this event, Liza! I’ll be there with my friend, Bridget. I hope people will look for us – we’ll be at the Unicorn Square booth, where people can find hand-made fairies, rainbow makers, birthday kits, and “heart-full” gifts for Mom! Our booth is B71.
See you there!!!
Great, Erik! Looking forward to it.
Sounds like a terrific event!
