Battle Lake craft show scheduled for Aug. 10

Art of the Lakes will hold its annual Art & Craft Affair Saturday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Railroad Park, located on the south end of Battle Lake along Highway 78.

In its 36th year, the 2013 event features beautiful and unique art and jewelry, original hand-made crafts and a number of favorite foods.

Whether your interest is apparel, hand-made furniture, doll clothes, toys, hand-painted gourds, woven rugs or baskets, sculptured metal, pottery, books or any of dozens of other arts or crafts, you’ll find it at this event.

More than 100 vendors will participate this year, many returning favorites, but also nearly two dozen new to the Art & Craft Affair. Vendors come from all over including the Twin Cities, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin and, of course, many places throughout greater Minnesota.

The Art & Craft Affair takes place rain or shine – always the second Saturday in August.
