NEW IBERIA, La. --- The Shadows-on-the-Teche Spring Arts and Crafts Fair will take place in the Shadows gardens on Saturday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Over 100 vendors from around Louisiana will display and sell their original work. A variety of hand-crafted products will be available for sale, and just in time for Easter and the beginning of spring! Stuffed bunnies, handmade jewelry, children’s clothing, hair accessories, and tasty treats make perfect basket fillers. Original artwork will brighten up any room, and colorful yard ornaments will help you ring in the spring season after a cold and icy winter.
Admission to the fair is $5 per person (12 and older) and $3 for children (ages 6-11) and includes a tour of the Shadows. Raffle tickets will be sold with all prizes donated by vendors. Food and dessert vendors will offer tempting choices. Come enjoy the day with your family and friends while supporting local artists, craftsmen, and the Shadows-on-the-Teche.
