Thank you for an incredible year!

We kept vendor fees low and created low-cost opportunities for emerging vendors, all while keeping admission and access to our hands-on activities FREE to everyone!

Handmade Arcade (HA) celebrated its 14th anniversary on December 8, 2018, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. HA is more than just one of the region’s most anticipated annual craft and art events. HA works year-round to continue a tradition of excellence that includes:

Hosting an annual event for craft-based artists and designers to sell, share and promote handmade goods (Showcasing 180+ innovative craft-based artists and designers);

Recruiting both new and returning vendors, and reaching out to under-served audiences;

Featuring arts groups, nonprofits and individual artists in its popular Hands-on Handmade activity area;

Pursuing partnerships with organizations that promote youth and minority entrepreneurs;

and so much more!
