Rain or shine, the Greater Milford Area Historical Society will present its 11th annual Art Affaire. The art and fine craft show, a key annual fundraiser for the society, has grown significantly each year and now features over 100 artists, as well as live music and food.

Art Affaire, which is free and open to the public, will feature over 110 local and regional artists this year, a 15 percent increase over 2015.

“Each year, we work on enhancing Art Affaire based on feedback and recommendations from our sponsors, artists and the local community,” said Donna Amann, historical society administrator. “This will be our second year on Main Street … The added benefit of the local shops and restaurants adds to the charm of this community event.”

New this year is the Art Affaire Shopping Venture, an opportunity for visitors to win gift certificates that can be spent with Art Affaire artists and food vendors. Tickets are $5 each, and three prizes will be awarded – one for $300 and two for $100 each. or
