Ocean Ridge Holiday Arts and Crafts Show
Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022
Again this year, the Pavilion was filled with wonderful, enthusiastic crowds for the Holiday Arts & Crafts Show. And Mother Nature contributed a gorgeous, summerlike day - perfect for shopping and socializing!
Many thanks to all who came and made it such a big success. Also, a great big Thank You to all our multi-talented vendors. What amazing work you do. The show simply would not happen without all of you and your wonderful talents!
The vendor fees amounted to $570, to be donated by Ocean Ridge Charities Association (ORCA) to Warm Homes-Warm Hearts heating assistance at Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation. And - “drum roll please” - BEMC matches that dollar for dollar. So a total of $1,140 to assist those who need help to pay their heating bills!
There’s even more: Many thanks to Judy Cunningham for the beautiful Christmas quilt she generously made and donated. The auction for the quilt raised an amazing $1,700… which increases to $3,400 when matched by BEMC – great! And congratulations to Kelly Miller, the lucky winner!
Again, thank you to our wonderful Ocean Ridge community for your outstanding support, and our incredibly gifted neighbors who shared their terrific talents with all!
The winner of the ORCA quilt raffle today was Kelly Miller!

2020 Ocean Ridge
November 14, 2020
11:00AM - 2:00PM
Ocean Ridge's annual Arts and Crafts Fair took place on a beautiful Saturday in mid-November. And, for at least a little while, it seemed like everything was back to normal.
There were some changes this time: the Fair was at the Pavilion, not the Plantation Club - and everyone arrived wearing a face-mask.
The artists and crafters were delighted with the event.
There was a great turnout of people to see the products, and, as usual, to once again socialize with one another.
For a few hours it was almost a welcome return to normal!
