**We are sad to announce that the 2020 Applebutter Festival has been CANCELLED due to COVID-19**
Crafts on Front Street is sponsored by the Historical Society of Grand Rapids Ohio. Thousands of handcrafted items made by local artisans are featured in 100+ booths (see 2020 list at end of page when it becomes available) that span the full length of the downtown area from West Street to Mill Street. This is the perfect place at the perfect time to do some holiday shopping!
We appreciate the support our visitors give to the official Applebutter Fest vendors - from the crafts on Front Street to the Food Booths on Beaver and Front Streets, as these vendors help provide the funds necessary to create the Applebutter Fest experience for our visitors.
Crafts on Front Street is one of the key attractions of the Applebutter Fest and we thank all of those, who participate.
We also extend a big "thank you" to the Crafts on Front Street Committee that reviews all applications for compliance with the guidelines, applies the selection criteria, and manages the area from set up to tear down on the day of the Fest.
As reservations are accepted by the committee for the 2020 Applebutter Fest, the participants are added to the list below in alphabetical order. Advertisements appear under About / Advertisers / On Front Street. The booth numbers are listed after the participant name and correspond to one of the sections on the map below. Booth numbers are not finalized / published until after August 1st.
