American Craft Council Shows

Producing craft shows is one of the Council’s core programs, a path to connect makers with buyers and educate the public about craft. Our shows—held annually in Baltimore, Atlanta, St. Paul, and San Francisco—offer guests the opportunity to touch and feel handmade objects and make personal connections.
 
The goal of our shows is to:
  • Attract diverse audiences
  • Provide an environment that creates opportunities to see and understand how objects are made
  • Give visitors and other artists a glimpse at the inspiration behind the work
  • Demonstrate how handmade objects enhance daily life
 
As a nonprofit, mission-based organization, ACC also provides lively on-site demonstrations and emerging artist programs to help broaden and deepen our reach. We do so by collaborating with local arts organizations, educational institutions, and artists.
 
The ACC shows have experienced significant growth in attendance, sales, and media coverage. We’re excited to continue this momentum by broadening our audience, re-energizing our shows, and spurring innovation in the field.
