Thirty years ago Lyndhurst, the flagship property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, opened its gates to Artrider Productions and the first Crafts at Lyndhurst festival. Since then, more than three-quarters of a million people have enjoyed this cultural phenomenon that has become one of the most beloved arts festivals in the United States. Crafts at Lyndhurst has raised almost four million dollars for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and has helped sustain the careers of thousands of artists from across the country. Check out what all of the fuss has been about for the last 30 years on Friday, Sept. 12 through Sunday, Sept. 14. A weekend pass is $12; seniors (62+) are $11; children 6 – 16 are $4 and children under 6 are free.
