Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festival

47th Annual Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festival

December 2-3, 2017

Nottingham High School, Syracuse, NY

(Saturday 10-5; Sunday 11-5) map


Plowshares is Central New York's premiere multicultural craftsfair, featuring over 120 local craftspeople and community organizations.

A beautiful community of activists, conscientious consumers and fair traders gather for a weekend of commerce and communing at the Plowshares Craftsfair and Peace Festival. Plowshares is an opportunity to step into the kind of world we’re working so hard to create: a place of justice, of peace, of compassion, of environmental sustainability. Plowshares is a labor of love that comes together thanks to the help of many volunteers.
