This annual event features the work of more than 100 artisans, including wooden furniture and toys, pottery, photography, jewelry, glass, knitted sweaters and throws, children’s clothing, metalware, and folk carvings. Visitors can enjoy live entertainment, a food court, and Codman Estate tours.
Once called "the handsomest place in America," this country estate was fashioned in the English manner and home to five generations of the Codman family. The grounds feature a hidden turn-of-the-century Italian garden with perennial beds, statuary, and a reflecting pool filled with water lilies, as well as a 1930s English cottage garden.
