  • Friday Night Happy Hour Host: NO LONGER AVAILABLE
  • Early Bird Shopping Host: A Handmade Arcade fan favorite, our Early Bird event is a chance to shop from makers before the full event opens to the public, allowing you to browse slowly, talk to the makers and support our year-round programming.
  • Youth Maker Alley Host: Support the region’s Youth Makers! Handmade Arcade’s Youth Maker Accelerator program will host 10+ individual youth makers (ages 13 to 19), Entrepreneurial Classrooms (grades 3 to 12), along with youth maker demonstrators.
