September 10 & 11 | 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
The event is free with museum admission.
This fair celebrates all styles of rustic creation, presented by more than 30 of today’s artisans and artists who werechosen by the museum for their unique style as expressed in handcrafted furniture, household furnishings, and Adirondack paintings. These rustic craftspeople from the Adirondack region and beyond will converge to display a wide variety of different materials, woodworking techniques, and interpretations of the Adirondack rustic style. Rustic artisans will talk with visitors about their inspirations, materials, and methods, and will have their rustic creations available for purchase.

The fair will also feature demonstrations by artisans, live musical performances, and a chance to explore all the museum exhibitions, including Bull Cottage, which is home to some of the museum’s renowned collection of rustic furniture and furnishings.

Saturday, September 24 | 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
The event and admission to the museum is FREE FOR ALL.
This new event will be a celebration of outdoor recreation and introduction to the broad opportunities for outdoor enjoyment for those who are unfamiliar or not yet comfortable exploring the region’s woods and waterways on their own. The day will feature workshops, games, demonstrations, and presentations, all in the spirit of providing museum visitors a foundation from which they can safely pursue recreation on their own. Demonstrations will cover the basics, such as how to pack a daypack or safely get into a boat. Workshops will include animal and plant identification and accessible campfire cooking. Throughout the day, we will have experienced recreationalists—especially BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and people with disabilities—sharing personal experiences, tips, and pearls of wisdom. Adirondack and North Country/Capital region recreational organizations that serve under-represented and marginalized communities will have tables and displays in an expo area at the event. All programs have been developed with participant accessibility in mind.

The ADKX will welcome regional colleges and universities to this event as a way to introduce students to the region’s remarkable outdoor offerings in an environment that is safe and inclusive. We invite classes and school groups to participate and help make this day a success.
