Handmade Hopewell, a makers fair, returns in May

Handmade Hopewell, 2019

Beth Judge and Jen Ghannam, the gals behind the green curtain, are pleased to announce the 7th Annual Handmade Hopewell Makers Street Fair taking place on Seminary Avenue in Hopewell Borough on Sunday, May 1, 2022 from 10am-4pm. 

Beth and Jen are past and present local shop owners, residents, artists and lovers of super cool stuff, especially when it’s handmade. Conceived in 2015, their desire was to create a Makers Street Fair melding their love of their town and their appreciation of handmade things and the artists who make them. Now every May, they take it to the street… Seminary Avenue to be exact. They like to say it’s small, but mighty, packing in a unique and highly curated show on this little block.

They have had an overwhelming response from local artists, crafters and makers and have curated this amazing and diverse group of participants:
