Old Poway Park, the City of Poway's award winning heritage park, uses living history to show how knowledge of the past can enrich lives today. The park celebrates life in America at the turn of the 20th Century when the Arts & Crafts Movement inspired a handcraft revival influencing architecture, jewelry, fashion and home furnishings around the world.
Artists who participate in the Boardwalk Craft Market are juried on a high standard of craftsmanship and creativity. In keeping with the park's living history theme, their work must show a connection to traditional arts and crafts of the past.
The Boardwalk Craft Market takes place rain or shine on the park's roofed south boardwalk surrounding the Poway Historical Society's Heritage Museum. Other events in Old Poway Park on Saturday mornings include the Farmers Market from 8 am to 11:30 am and the Poway Midland Railroad's steam locomotive, trolley and speeder car operations from 10 am to 4 pm.
