It’s great fun and by coming, shopping and enjoying yourself, you’ll be supporting the important work of the Syracuse Peace Council.

Central New York’s premiere multicultural crafts fair brings to life a community marketplace and celebrates a world where people enjoy their work and have control over it. Plowshares provides a family-friendly alternative to frantic shopping and mass-produced goods.

The crafts, created by over 120 craftspeople from throughout Central New York, are not only high quality but also sensitive to social and environmental concerns. Holiday gift buyers will find crafts ranging from hand-screened and batik clothing, stained glass, pottery, vegetable-based soaps, fabric dolls, jewelry (bone, copper, brass, silver, gemstones, ceramic, glass beads), blown glass, leatherwork, hand-dipped incense, and many other items.

There will be ongoing performances, by local musicians, dancers, and drummers.  In addition, tasty food from The Mission Restaurant, ranging from snacks to healthy meals will be available at reasonable prices.
