We are delighted to announce that the 23rd annual Crafts at the Cathedral will again take place within the nave of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine Friday December 6 through Sunday December 8, 2019. The response to our 22nd annual show was one of sheer delight. The Cathedral proved to be a magical venue for the show. As the sun played through the stained glass windows onto the massive granite columns, shoppers and tourists alike enjoyed the expanded show.
