 The Mountain State Art and Craft Fair is the graddaddy of all fairs and festivals in Appalachia and is a juried event meaning lots of people apply but not everyone makes the cut. It is a difficult process because we see some of the most amazing artisans, craftsmen and women from West Virginia and throughout the Appalachian region. 


So with that in mind, here’s the big news. For the first time in the history of the Mountain State Art and Craft Fair, we’re adding YOU to the selection process.

This year, you will select one vendor from West Virginia as the People’s Choice Award Winner. 


So how do we make that happen?  Well first, you have to be engaged with us. Like our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram and Tiktok.

Then, create your own video. You can nominate yourself or you can nominate an artisan you know. Be sure to provide their name, what they create, and where they are in West Virginia. 


You can post this video to our Tiktok page directly or post it here and we'll take care of the rest. 

For the debut of our People’s Choice Award, we’re focusing on West Virginia and on June 20, West Virginia Day, we’ll announce the winner!
