Support Handmade Arcade

Your contribution will help Handmade Arcade connect creators and consumers through making, sharing and learning. 

Whether you have learned a new craft, sold your own products or selected one-of-kind gifts at Handmade Arcade, we invite you to support our nonprofit mission and see what we can accomplish together. We believe in the power of making to change lives and transform communities — and we hope you do, too.

What began in 2004 in a small warehouse space above Construction Junction with 30 DIY artists and 1,000 curious attendees has evolved into one of the largest independent craft fairs in the Northeast. A leading force in the local and regional craft economy, Handmade Arcade provides vital opportunities for involvement and engagement.
