Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com)-- The Glensheen Estate is hosting a cultured event over the next few days.

The 19th Annual Festival of Fine Art and Crafts puts a unique twist on a craft fair. Artists can only bring in hand made and original pieces for the public and the idea is a popular one--close to 4,000 people are expended to attend.

Interim Director Dan Hartman says the beautiful of the estate helps draw the large crowd.

"Your on Glensheen--your not on a sidewalk somewhere--your on this beautiful property through it and in addition, these are all hand crafted pieces," said Hartman.

The event is free admission; there is also free parking and a free shuttle bus, which is the recommended mode of transportation to the festival.
