Spring 2015 marked our first ever “Show Us New Haven Through Your Craft” contest where we asked contestants to share anything they felt represented New Haven through their own craft.

From snow showers in March to May’s flowers, we enjoyed each of the 155 entries. At May’s end, we had our top six finalists with the most votes (check them out on our Facebook page). Thank you to all of our contestants for showcasing your craft and thank you to the voters! Contestants, you raked in over 1.2K collective votes! Cheers to that.

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Bragging rights aside, one contestant will win the grand prize of $500 while the five runner-ups will receive $100.

We will be announcing the Grand Prize Winner at our Taste of New Haven Event on Thursday, June 25 from 6-8 pm. If you’re living in New Haven, we’d love for you to join us at Winchester Lofts for a celebration of New Haven’s incredible food scene.

Hope to see you next week – you can RSVP for the event right here.
