ROCKFORD — Whether you’re looking to get a special gift for someone or just looking to get out and shop with your friends, Cider N’ Cinnamon has a little something for everyone.

The annual arts and craft fair at Edgebrook is back this year for its 46th year. It features locally made art, jewelry, paintings, gifts, clothing and more.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, and Sunday, Oct. 3. Vendors will set up both indoors and outdoors. There will also be live music on both days.

“After everything the past 18 months has brought us, we’re thrilled to be able to return to tradition. There’s something very special about Edgebrook and heartwarming about Cider N’ Cinnamon,” Sandy Dingus, Edgebrook marketing and events coordinator, said in a news release. “People look forward to this event, which has become a community tradition. That’s something we all need right now, so we’re so pleased we can return with it and a sense of normalcy.”

All the shops at Edgebrook are locally owned, Dingus said.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer the Rockford region a chance to kick start the holiday shopping season by supporting local makers. It’s this event and these local businesses that are at the heart of Edgebrook and our community,” she said.
