The 45th annual OHIO MART and the 38th annual Stitchery Showcase will be held at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens on September 29-October 2, 2011.
This year, there will be more entertainment and vendors than ever, including 140 artisans and craftspeople. The Stan Hywet Exclusives and artisan demos are back this year and not to be missed. It is the perfect spot for finding unique gifts and decor for yourself and loved ones including one-of-a-kind sculptures, jewelry, holiday items, hand-crafted furniture and more.
Enjoy freshly baked local favorites (including gingerbread) from your favorite local bakeries. (This is one of the only places that I have found that sells gingerbread in the Akron, Ohio area – get it while you can!)
For entertainment, enjoy the Firestone High School Madrigals as they perform from an a cappella repertoire on Saturday and Sunday afternoon of Ohio Mart. Also, Fergie and the Bog Dogs, a popular Irish pub band performs on Saturday afternoon.
