Music, arts and crafts go together. Crafters are an important part of the Shawano Folk Music Festival. Stroll through the park during the day to find handmade instruments, soaps and candles, jewelry, knitted and crocheted goods, and other arts and crafts. Some of the crafters demonstrate their artistry. All of them love to answer your questions.
