LURAY – On Saturday, Oct. 21, the small town of Luray, Kansas will host their now annual Luray Craftique. This year, they are expecting more than 170 vendors to attend. In addition to the normal arts and craft vendors, the Luray Craftique has also had the fortune to be able to partner with the Vesper Vintage event. The Vesper event experienced a loss of venue for their antique market, and instead of closing, they are just moving over to the city of Luray for that day.
The Luray Craftique is one of the largest craft fairs in the state of Kansas, and possibly the largest mostly indoor market. The town and citizens of Luray has offered up many of their vacant buildings and lots for use at the Craftique, thus giving the vendors over 100 indoor spaces to choose from and tons of outdoor space. The event will be in more than six buildings throughout town, all within walking distance of Main Street Luray.
The Craftique is a non-profit event, where shoppers can come and shop with the entrance fee of a canned good. All profits from the event benefit the Luray Food Pantry and the Luray Senior Center.
Luray is a small community located about one hour from both Hays and Salina, and about 25 miles north of Russell. For more information about being a vendor or a guest, email the event hosts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
