44th Annual Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festiv
The Syracuse Peace Council host its 44rd annual Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festival, this weekend on December 6-7 (Saturday 10-5 pm and Sunday 11-5 pm) at Nottingham High School, 3100 E. Genesee St., Syracuse. Admission is $2-5 sliding scale, free for under 16 and over 65.
Central New York’s premiere multi-cultural craftsfair, Plowshares includes 130 talented, diverse craftspeople and community organizations. Additionally, the event is a festival, complete with ongoing live entertainment and tasty food for sale from The Mission restaurant.
“Plowshares is more than a craftsfair,” notes organizer Andy Molloy, “It’s a community gathering of people who hope for and work for a better world. Shopping at Plowshares is a great way to support the local economy.”
Crafts at Plowshares are designed to suit a broad price range. This year’s crafts include clothing, jewelry, soap and candles, winter wear, wooden bowls and decorative objects, metal and stone sculpture, herbal medicinals, wool and yarn products, and information from local community groups. The SPC Marketplace features peace and social justice books, calendars, t-shirts, stickers, buttons and more. There will also be a SPC Raffle and a Silent Auction.
Plowshares is a major fundraiser for the Syracuse Peace Council, the oldest grassroots independent peace and social justice organization in the US. It’s a great opportunity to work towards a more peaceful world, promote creativity and social justice, and have tons of fun.
