Mitten Made Art & Craft Show


We are proud to be collaborating with the South Haven Center for the Arts for their Mitten Made Art & Craft Show December 19, 2015 from 10am to 5pm just outside the doors of the Museum and extending down Black River Street.  Mitten Made is a one-day, European-style winter fair, featuring booths of Michigan made arts and crafts and artisanal products. Along with crafts, there will be music, food, kids’ events and loads of outdoor fun and games.

The Museum will have a hot cocoa booth outside as part of Mitten Made as well as children’s book readings, kids’ holiday crafts, Ship’s Store deals and more inside. Since we know everyone is a kid at heart during the holidays, we are also offering the Museum child admission rate of $5 and kids 5 and under are free!

For more information on Mitten Made Art & Craft Show, please visit the South Haven Center for the Arts events webpage.
