We have received some questions about directions to the festival.  At this time I do not have a map to insert here, but I will try to give some more detailed directions.

If you are coming from the west on route 16:  exit at the Coshocton/Roscoe Village exit.  Turn left and almost immediately take a right into Roscoe Village.  The college building (COTC) is the first building on your right.  There is parking in the back of the building and an entrance there.

If you are coming from the east on 16/36: You may exit at the first right hand turn (there is a sign for Roscoe Village), take an immediate left into the village.  The college building is at the other end of that street.  You will pass the shops, restaurants, and museum.  There is parking behind the building.  If you miss that exit, you may take the next right exit - and when you come to the stop sign go straight to go into the village.  The college is the first building on your right. 

There will be vendors across the street from the college and along the sidewalk.  Registration is in the parlor on the street level.  If you enter through the back entrance use the elevator and go up one floor to the registration table.
We are so grateful for the generosity of the folks who donated such beautiful items for our 2016 festival raffle!!!
