There is a June 9 deadline for those wishing to be included in the inaugural brochure and map of the new Loudoun County Artisan Trail.
So far, the trail features 92 sites and that is expected to grow as word spreads about the new program.
The Artisan Trail Network identifies and markets each region’s culture and artisan traditions, focusing on handcrafted and locally grown products. The program is designed to promote economic development and tourism.
Loudoun’s trail includes breweries and wineries, farmer’s markets and farms to visit, art studios and galleries, and specialized restaurants and accommodations.
Artisan studios, galleries, and agricultural artisan businesses, supporting sites such as locally-owned lodging and restaurants, festivals and cultural points of interest also may join.
Those interested may download the Artisan Trail Network Participation Details at artisantrailnetwork.org or contact the Artisans Center of Virginia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
