Just like most other states, Virginia hosts many craft shows on an annual basis. The events held in Virginia, however, are unique because of their varied focus. While some of these craft shows are what you'd normally expect from a fair, and there are also those with a category all on their own. Let's take a peek at some of these events so that you get an idea of what I'm talking about:
Each year, there is a convention for anime, manga, and otherwise Japanese culture that occurs in Crystal City, Virginia. It is traditionally held at the weekend before Thanksgiving Day, it usually has no place for local craftspeople. Although, as I have made my way through this particular event, I noticed some people who have taken it upon themselves to adapt. They make sculptures of popular anime characters, and it sells well during this time of the year.


Another interesting craft show that may seem different to the classical ones is the MAGfest; short for Music And Gaming Festival. The main feature of this event is the group of large open video gaming rooms, as well as loud but talented bands who draw inspiration from the video games they play. Like the anime convention, these events prove to be a successful venue to sell custom-made sculptures and figurines.
Now we go to another convention, but this time it is the preferred event of science-fiction fanatics. As the blending of futuristic events and fantasy gets more popular, RavenCon's science fiction convention gets a constantly increasing attendance. Space ship models take center stage here, with the sci-fi inspired miniatures getting only middling attention. Why get a figurine when you can have an autograph from the actors present, after all?

I find these events to be quite interesting, but I also understand the sentiments of people who find it too different from a standard craft show. And while yes, the crafts are not the main focus in these events, there are still plenty of opportunities for those like me who have an artistic streak. Whatever the case, you can always search for craft shows in Virginia if you prefer the classical craft shows.


If you think that Manchester is nothing but factories and organisation, think again. It may seem like a sincere money oriented location during the day, but there are enough games to keep even the most active colleagues of a stag night enthusiastic. And once evening falls, this is a city where the action never stops.

Getting Around Manchester
Manchester is a big city and quite spread out. Public transport in the form of buses and taxis is easily available, but in a city with so much packed into it, the greatest way for enjoying a stag night out with the lads is to select a locality like The Triangle, The Printworks or the Northern Quarters and head to the places in one area before moving on to the next, presuming you're still capable or interested by the time you've been to all the bars.

Things To Do In Manchester
Can a employees of lads on a stag night head to Manchester and not play football? Unless you're totally anti sports or too hung over to move, attempt your hand, or rather foot, at indoor 5 a side football in the new complex. Besides this the city provides stags looking for daytime activities just about anything they could ask for from indoor karting, off road driving, rock climbing, kayaking, archery and much far more.

No matter how you wish to spend your day, there will be something to interest you. It makes sense to look up all the games in advance, and choose which of your employees is going to do what or if you're all going to stick together for a real stag night activity like paintball games. The point is with so many options to select from, wasting time once you arrive, trying to choose what you're going to do, does not make much sense.

Manchester Entertainment
Bar, clubs, restaurants, comedy clubs and greyhound racing, Manchester has both the options and the number of places to make it a good stag night location. The bars are good places to meet ladies and find the right organisation for a evening on the city.

But if you're in the mood for a real stag night, a head to to a lap dance club must be part of your evening. Spare a thought for the poor stag amongst you. This may be the last time he gets to one of these places! So take him there and make the majority of the stag night in Manchester.

Manchester Food and Drinks
Manchester has become one of the most fashionable cities in the country and the variety of food and beverage available here reflects that. From fish and chips to get you started on a long evening, to ending it with spicy curries there is every format of food available here. And all kinds of places to eat it in - from the most sophisticated to the caf??s where anything goes. Literally. It all depends on what format of food and action you're looking for.
