Meet the Exhibitors

Decoy carvers and artisans from Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New Jersey, Arizona, Maryland, Maine, Florida and Virginia exhibit their work from rustic working decoys to finely detailed workmanship each year at the Easter Decoy & Art Festival. This two-day event is a unique and memorable opportunity to meet the exhibitors and watch them create their work. Many artisans have been a part of the show for decades with a handful participating over 40 years.
