Sogn Valley Craft Fair 2012

Sogn Valley Craft Fair is a Minnesota tradition; 2012 marks our 40th year bringing fine art, crafts and local and artisinal foods in a beautiful country setting.

Mark your calenders! Date for SVCF for 2012:
Saturday, October 6th, 10 am- 5 pm
Sunday, October 7th, 10 am-5 pm

Sogn Valley Craft Fair is special.

SVCF is located in Minnesota's Sogn Valley in Southeastern Minnesota. The Sogn Valley landscape is rolling hills, farmland, forests and small fast-moving rivers and streams. For many Twin Citians a trip to SVCF is a chance to both check out excellent arts AND get away from the city--but not too far. SVCF is just 45 minutes from the Twin Cities and it's a lovely drive. In early October the trees will be changing colors and you might see some deer or wild turkeys on your way down.

SVCF is an intimate juried show. That means our artists are invited to the show based on the quality of their work with an eye towards representing diverse media. Visitors can definitely expect to see it all during a morning or afternoon at the Fair.

SVCF is free! No admission fee and no parking fees.

SVCF was supporting local and artisinal foods long before it was the hip thing to do. Raw Minnesota wildflower honey, organic produce, indian corn, pumpkin ands seasonal garden items, handmade jams, relishes, caramels and mnore are part of the mix.

We feature local music. You might find a band set up in the barn or maybe strolling among the crowds.
