ROANOKE, Va. - Preparations for the Craftsmen's Fall Classic Art & Craft Festival at the Berglund Center is getting underway.

This annual event kicks off Friday.

It will feature original work from hundreds of talented artists and craftspeople from across the nation.

The festival is also the second largest food donation opportunity for the local food bank.

Any donated food will represent the entry fee.

Organizers hope the festival will help boost donated food supplies for Feeding America Southwest Virginia which is currently down in donated food by about 50 percent.
