17th Annual Artisans Guild Holiday Tour

On Thanksgiving weekend, the Artisans Guild is sponsoring the largest Holiday Tour in its 17 year history. With almost 50 of the Shore’s finest artisans located at 17 stops from Onancock to Cape Charles, this free self-driving tour promises to be extraordinary. Don’t miss the two-day event to be held on Friday and Saturday, November 29 & 30 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.


Just like turkey and sweet potato pie, the Artisans Guild Holiday Tour is a tradition on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Come do your holiday shopping – no Black Friday Malls in this Tour! It’s a treat for folks who want a fun shopping experience, need something to do with out-of-town relatives, or just think the Shore is a fabulous place to visit.

The Tour is a slice of the best the Shore has to offer. Organized by the Artisans Guild-Eastern Shore of Virginia, it showcases member artists and their work. Enjoy sculptures, paintings, glass blowing, pottery, fiber art, carvings and more. The Guild promises to take you down country roads into home studios, historic venues, an alpaca farm and a family owned vineyard and winery. As you travel through the Shore, the place these artists call home, you'll experience the beauty that inspires their work.

Brochures are available at local businesses, online at www.ESVAArtisansGuild.org or contact the Guild at info@ESVAArtisansGuild.org.
