ABOUT

 

Craft & Draft Festival is celebrating year 5! This festival started with a handful of dedicated and eager volunteers who wanted to see a street-style festival in Radford! Along with a large variety of hand-crafted artisans, crafters and makers, Craft & Draft rocks out all day long with live music, keeps you hydrated with a variety of local & semi-local craft-beer  and keeps your belly full with local food trucks! Our event is FREE, FAMILY FRIENDLY , and DOG FRIENDLY- we're here to celebrate the amazing vendors - the artists, photographers, jewelry makers, creators, musicians, chefs, you name it - all high quality and completely unique and original. 

Beyond crafting and drafting, we are proud to give back to our community! Each year, Craft & Draft chooses a local non-profit or charity to benefit. We're proud to say in the five years of C&D, we have GIVEN BACK $4,750 DOLLARS! Last year's recipients was the Radford Animal Shelter - we were honored to present them with a $1,000 check - all with the help of YOUR help & donations!

Craft & Draft was founded by Lauri Murphy, owner of the former Green Heron Arts. Along with Laura Kinzie (graphic designer/local artisan), Kayla Crowder (music coordinator), and the Radford Chamber of Commerce (who took us on as a 3-year pilot program), C&D began in 2015 with 15 vendors, one food truck, and three beers on tap. We grew to become our own entity & have gained a handful of new volunteers, but our vision has not changed and we are now home to over 40 local vendors, 3 food trucks, and five craft beers on tap! Wow! We are forever grateful to our supporters, volunteers, and sponsors who help keep this event alive and growing year after year!!

Our goal is to bring quality hand-crafted goods straight to you - our neighbors - to have an enjoyable shopping experience while showcasing the value the creative spirit. Never forget: A handmade item is made with love, with heart, with joy and is simply irreplaceable.

RAFT CRISIS HOTLINE - A PHONE COUNSELING SERVICE THAT PROVIDES SUICIDE & CRISIS INTERVENTION, EMPATHY & SUPPORT, MENTAL HEALTH & SUBSTANCE ABUSE INFORMATION & REFERRALS. 

540-961-8400

The Raft Crisis Hotline is a program of NRVCS (New River Valley Community Services) that offers free paraprofessional phone counseling services to the community. Our volunteers provide suicide and crisis intervention, empathy and support, mental health and substance abuse information and referrals to the counties of Montgomery, Floyd, Giles, Pulaski and the City of Radford (including Virginia Tech and Radford University). Raft is the only crisis hotline in Virginia affiliated with and located within a community service board, NRVCS. This provides Raft callers with continual access to professionals and trained volunteers, phone counseling, information and referrals – services not available through other community service boards. Raft operates 4 p.m. – 8 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hours on the weekends. NRVCS Case Managers answer the phones during business hours and New Horizons, a residential crisis stabilization program, provides callers with services when volunteers are unavailable. To learn more about how you can become a Raft volunteer, or make a contribution in support of the Hotline, please contact Amy at 540.961.8422 ext. 1137 or raft@nrvcs.org.
