We are excited that you are interested in the 5th annual, HeART of Rogers Craft Fair!  

The HeART of Rogers Crafts Fair brings an exciting component to downtown Rogers, offering upscale products that appeal to the widely diverse interests of Northwest Arkansas locals, as well as the vast influx of regional tourists attracted to craft fairs throughout the area.

The HeART of Rogers Crafts Fair will be held inside at TWO downtown venues: 1) Haas Hall Academy building located at 121 W Poplar Street in what was once the Historic Lane Hotel, and 2) The Fellowship Hall of First United Methodist Church at 3rd & Elm Streets.  We will fill Haas Hall first, then the FUMC Fellowship Hall.

 

EVENT DATES & TIMES

The Craft Fair will take place Friday and Saturday, October 18th and 19th.  Set-up will take place Thursday the 17th, from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Following set-up, the doors will be locked until Friday morning at 8:00 a.m.  Doors will then be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.
