Visitors to one of the oldest craft fair in the city will get a taste of frontier life and glimpse the works of local artists, said John Bryan, historical interpreter for Hager House and Museum.
About 50 vendors are expected to attend Jonathan Hager Frontier Craft Days this weekend. Several first-timers among the vendors at the juried show are preparing a big day.
"It will be my biggest venture," said Hagerstown artist Jennifer Blazes, an illustrator who specializes in hand-scripted poems and Bible scriptures.
The craft show has entered its 34th year, making it one of the city's oldest craft fairs, Bryan said. Organizers said they plan to continue the tradition of focusing on frontier life and what things might have been like when Jonathan Hager lived there centuries ago.
