The Nationally Acclaimed and Charitable Show Will Feature Gifted Artists From Throughout the Country
MORRISTOWN, NJ -- The Morristown CraftMarket, now celebrating its 43rd consecutive year as a nationally acclaimed and charitable fine art and craft show featuring gifted artists from throughout the country, will be held Fri., Oct. 18 through Sun., Oct. 20, at the Morristown Armory, 430 Western Avenue.
The show hours are:

Sat., Oct. 19, 10am to 6pm; and
Sun., Oct. 20, 10am to 5pm.
“For 43 years, the Morristown CraftMarket has received acclaim as a major cultural and charitable event not only in New Jersey but throughout our nation,” said Show Director Geoffrey Price, a member of the not-for-profit and all-volunteer Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township, New Jersey, which sponsors and runs the event.
“The thousands of patrons who come each year to our show at the Morristown Armory know that we showcase extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine arts and crafts - all made in America by American hands - and that all our profits go to local charities,” said Price.
The exhibiting artists will display and sell their original creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, furniture, mixed media, wearable fiber and more.
Opening Night Reception
The Morristown CraftMarket will host an Opening Night Reception on Fri., Oct. 18 from 4pm - 7pm for patrons who are at least 21 years old. Beer and wine will be sold.
Silent Auction to Benefit Sam’s NICU
For the fourth consecutive year, the show will hold a silent auction in loving memory of Robert James (“RJ”) Nelson, III, a brave baby boy who was born 13.5 weeks premature and fought hard for the right to live for 82 days.
The Silent Auction will continue to put the show’s spotlight on premature birth, which is a national health crisis. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Morristown Medical Center ("Sam’s NICU”), which helps premature babies and their families.
The silent auction will conclude at 5pm on Sun., Oct. 20. Winners will be notified and need not be present.
