2019 American Craft Shows

 

The Baltimore Convention Center in Maryland is home to the Council’s flagship show, now in its 43rd year. This highly competitive and prestigious show is a must-attend event for wholesale buyers and the public, attracting artists, buyers, and craft appreciators from across the United States.

Jury notifications will be emailed in late September of 2018.

Please note: There are three separate sections in the Baltimore show: wholesale-only, wholesale/retail, and retail-only. Each is considered to be a separate portion of the show and should be applied to separately. Artists may apply to any or all sections of the show and are eligible to exhibit only in the sections to which they apply and are accepted. Note how many booths are available in each section of the show when considering your application choices.

New in 2019: You spoke and we listened. The 2019 wholesale show will be one day only, and we are reducing the size of the retail show.
