Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the spring festivals that Saga Hill would have been participating in as a vendor during 2021 have been postponed to 2022. Currently, it appears that the fall 2021 events will be able to take place.

In the meantime, Thank You for supporting artists and small businesses in whatever way you can during this trying time.
