Blenko Glass Company. Mountain State Fair Sept 16-18th 2016

More than 50 years of family fun and entertainment.

The Mountain State Art and Craft Fair®: An Appalachian Experience continues a long tradition of bringing high-quality craftsmanship to the beautiful state of West Virginia.

Since 1963 the fair has historically taken place on the grounds of the beautiful Cedar Lakes Conference Center near Ripley, WV, and will continue that tradition this year. This serene setting makes the ideal landscape to feature some of the best entertainment and artisans that the Appalachian region has to offer.

You and your family will find the best opportunity to experience culture on many levels from new and traditional arts. Don’t forget about all the great food, heritage exhibits and interactive family activities.

Mountain Music,  Crafts and Mountain Foods.

Our favorite activity at this Fair is the Mountain Music - the Violins and other Mountain String Instruments.

Blenko is now making a Violin. 
Spring Green - but available in other colors.  See www.blenkoglass.com  Cost is under $100

Spring Green Violin Vase
Patterned after the style and design of an actual violin, these stylish 11.5’’ tall vases available in Tangerine or Spring Green are perfect for the glass enthusiast looking for something a little different.

Did the Fair this weekend. It is very different from past years. My belief is it will not survive in this format.
BTW I saw no Blenko!
Did see Appalachain Glass from Weston and another small glass art display.
