Artists from across the country will exhibit at the Ringmead arts centre this Saturday and Sunday (November 17-18).
Visitors will be able to enjoy and explore a variety of one-of-a-kind wares and co-organiser, Eryl Pearcey, said the event has been a "great success" in the past.
She added: "For more than 30 years we have held a reputation for offering a diverse selection of contemporary craft from local and national artists, who travel to visit the beautiful mansion and to greet visitors from Bracknell, Berkshire and the surrounding counties.
"People have a misconception about craft fairs and every year I meet new visitors who are astounded at the beauty and variety of the pieces we have to offer."
Artist Caroline Loveys, from Harmans Water, will showcase a unique range of stained-glass ornaments.
She said: "I'll mainly be exhibiting jewellery and decorative objects, but am also a stained-glass window designer and hold workshops at South Hill Park."
The 41-year-old added: "South Hill Park is such a great setting and the fairs always have a fantastic atmosphere and high-quality crafts.
"Hopefully there will be lots of people on the pre-Christmas run buying presents and gifts!"
The weekend will also include specalist and taster workshops - at an added cost - for guests to find out about the different courses.
Doors open from 11am-6pm on the Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday.
Tickets cost £7 for the weekend or £5 for a day and under 10s go free. To book, call 01344 484123 or visit www.southhillpark.org.uk
