The Main Event:

Saturday, December 4, from 11 a.m.–7 p.m
David L. Lawrence Convention Center 

Shop one-of-a-kind products from over 200 talented makers, artists, and craftspeople and experience our region’s art and culture with live demonstrations, free take-and-make craft kits, and more. Whether you’re shopping for the perfect gift or just looking to be inspired, our talented maker community of over 200 artists will surprise and delight with one-of-a-kind artwork, trendsetting home decor, and funky jewelry and accessories you won’t find at the big box store.

Registration is required: every attendee must reserve their free admission slot in advance to reduce crowds at check-in. There is no time limit on your shopping trip—once you check-in during your designated hour, the market is yours to enjoy as long as you’d like!
