We are accepting applications for our 33rd Annual Luzerne County Community College Alumni Craft Festival on Saturday, October 15, 2022.  Our show is a longstanding event that features nearly 150 artisans and food vendors and draws people from throughout our region to shop at this one-day event.  Proceeds from the Craft Festival support Luzerne County Community College and its students. 

This is a juried show and the Committee will look for quality and originality when reviewing all submissions.  Applicants are required to submit the following photos with your application: three of your product, two of you working on your craft and one of your display. These photos can be submitted in one of three ways: 1) you may email them to craftshow@luzerne.edu (include your name in the subject line); 2) you may upload to our One Drive account for larger files or videos - email blauer@luzerne.edu for a link or 3)you can mail in photos to LCCC Craft Festival, 521 Trailblazer Dr., Nanticoke, PA 18634.  If you do not have any new crafts and have participated in each of the past 5 years (2016-present) you may request that we use your photos on file (and please note #9 below).  Acceptable photo file formats are .jpg, .png and .pdf.
