Art for a Cause

The Rotary Club of Cashiers is well-known for its crowd-pleasing Arts and Crafts Shows. 

This Labor Day weekend celebrates the event’s 10th Anniversary, continuing its tradition of bringing extremely talented and skilled artisans from throughout the Southeast and beyond to the area to raise money for the underserved in our community.     

Visitors to the Village Green at the Cashiers Crossroads will be wowed with the one-of-a-kind pieces from the Southeast’s finest painters, sculptors, jewelers, wood and metal workers, quilters, toy and instrument crafters, soap and condiment makers, and more.  What a wonderful way to pick up gifts for family and friends for birthdays, anniversaries or just to have when guests come in.    

As you stroll through the rows of exhibits, be sure to stop by the Rotary Club’s Refreshments Booth, where you can grab a hamburger, hot dog or veggie burger to keep you fueled in your quest for that perfect art item.     

The show runs from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. daily on Saturday, September 2, and Sunday, September 3, rain or shine.  While admission is free, a suggested donation of $3-$5 is appreciated.  Proceeds from the show go to benefit the many local charities, non-profit organizations, community projects, and scholarship recipients supported by the club.   

To date, the club has raised and distributed more than $1 million to those doing good work in our community.  Meals on Wheels, the Boys & Girls Club of WNC, Fishes & Loaves Food Pantry, the Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic, Rise Against Hunger, the Vecinos Farmworker Health Program, and the CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) Fund are just a few of the community efforts Cashiers Rotary supports.  The club has also recently made a commitment to helping keep our talented and skilled workers at home by funding continuing education opportunities to those who live and work in our area.

Join Cashiers Rotary for a celebratory weekend of fine arts, local crafts, family fun, stunning scenery, and old-fashioned philanthropy in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
