Oaks, PA is conveniently located in the northern Phialdelphia suburbs. It is a short drive from major attractions, including Valley Forge National Park and the largest mall on the east coast, King of Prussia Mall.


Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at OaksUpon its opening in January 2009, the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center became one of the largest suburban exhibition centers on the east coast. Situated in a hot new shopping and entertainment destination, the Oaks site’s neighbors include a large 24 screen stadium theater and several popular restaurants.


Sugarloaf is long established in the Philadelphia market. Our first festival was held at the former Fort Washington Expo Center in 1997. Over the years, we have found a very loyal following of Philadelphia area art and craft enthusiasts. In 2009, patrons and artists alike celebrated our move to the new expo center in Oaks, PA. Sugarloaf Craft Festivals are voted in the Top-50 Craft Shows by Sunshine Artist Magazine.
