The Madison County Historical Society is taking the necessary COVID precautions, so that the Madison County Craft Festival is a safe and fun event for all.  Face coverings will be required of everyone when they are on the Historical Society’s grounds. At entry as part of our screening process, temperatures will be taken, and everyone will be asked a series of COVID related questions before they step onto the Historical Society’s grounds.  Throughout the duration of the Craft Festival we will be operating at the allowable maximum 33% capacity that includes all artisans, vendors, visitors, volunteers, and staff. All booth spaces, tables, and chairs will be spaced six feet apart per the social distancing guidelines.  Hand sanitizing stations will be available around the Historical Society’s grounds and various high contact surfaces will be disinfected regularly. The safety and comfort level of everyone in attendance at the Madison County Craft Festival is the Historical Society’s primary concern. The Historical Society hopes everyone will help us to provide a fun enjoyable weekend event for all by adapting to the new Craft Festival guidelines  and know that we appreciate our visitors support and cooperation during this time. We are all in this together.

The Festival is one of the Madison County Historical Society’s major fundraisers. Proceeds from the event support the educational programs offered. We look forward to having you join us to purchase handmade items from our talented artisans, eat delicious food from the food trucks, purchase wine from NYS wineries, and  listen to live music. No animals (except for service animals) or smoking are permitted on the grounds. This year’s Madison County Craft Festival is made possible by the most generous support from The Gorman Foundation.
