YMCA Crafts Fair
Held each year before the start of the holiday season, the YMCA Crafts Fair has long been a Blacksburg tradition. More than 80 booths feature the work of juried artists and craftspeople from roughly eight states. Items for sale include jewelry, metalwork, glassworks, woodworks, photography, fine arts, soaps and candles, furniture, pottery, textiles, and more. All proceeds support the YMCA at Virginia Tech's community outreach and leadership programs.
