Olde Salem Days
September 8 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Come to the mountains of Virginia and shop at the largest one-day arts and crafts festival you will ever see! JULPAK is excited to return to Olde Salem Days for 2018! I will be located on Main Street this year, so look for me at the east end of the street.
Olde Salem Days will continue its grand tradition and storied reputation as the foremost Arts and Craft event
in the region. On September 8th (Second Saturday in September), the renowned Olde Salem Days graces the
streets of downtown Salem, Virginia for the late Summer/early Fall Annual Arts Festival.
OSD lls downtown Salem every year as it features the work of hundreds of artisans as well as beautifully
maintained classic cars, delicious food, live music while drawing tens of thousands of patrons locally and
from all over. This event has provided a prime opportunity for festival attendees to get an early start for
holiday shopping by purchasing original handcrafted gifts as they discover and support local artisans.
OSD is a true Arts and Craft festival with a strong emphasis placed on original, handmade one-of-a-kind
items. All crafters for this year’s event have been prescreened and selected to ensure their wares meet this
criteria. Many local artists and craftsmen will feature items such as pottery, woodworking, handmade
jewelry, candles, needlecraft, and home baked treats to name a few. In addition to the beautiful arts and
crafts, there will be a large food court located at the Salem Farmer’s Market with a large variety of delicious
cuisine, refreshing beverages and sweet desserts.
OSD will also feature generous seating areas for patrons to enjoy their fare or rest their feet while listening to
live music of local bands. The Kids’ Fair area will be located next to the Salem Library and include such
activities as jumping in the inatables and face painting.
A Car Show at the east end of the festival, will showcase the beauty of past classic cars trucks, motorcycles
and also feature state-of-the-art automotive designs.
Olde Salem Days 2018 will surely have something for everyone to enjoy
