Conceived by Manhattan-based interior designer Brad Ford, who weekends in Ulster County, and inspired by the local fairs he attended while growing up in Arkansas, Field and Supply: A Modern Makers’ Craft Fair got started in 2014, attracting notice from various high-end design publications. Billed as “a modern interpretation of a traditional arts and crafts fair,” Field and Supply presents a carefully curated selection of makers highlighting goods, old and new, from a variety of studios and workshops representing a wide range of crafts.
The concept took off, and this year Ford added a Memorial Day weekend event to bookend the summer. The sixth annual Columbus Day weekend fair now returns to the Hutton Brickyards in Kingston, featuring food, live craft demos and hands-on activity stations along with awesome vendors of household furnishings, wearables and consumables. Live music will be provided on Friday by the Wild Goats and Blueberry, on Saturday by Bees in the Barn, the Bones of J. R. Jones and Cricket Tell the Weather and on Sunday by the Lucky Five, the Saints of Swing and the Good Morning Nags.
Field and Supply runs from 2 to 6 p.m. on Friday, October 11, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 13. Admission costs $15 per day at the gate, $25 for both Saturday and Sunday and $35 for all three days. For more info, including a full listing of exhibitors, visit www.fieldandsupply.com.
