About the 2017 Craft'za

Craft'za is a juried market for handmade goods, with an exciting new format in 2017. For the first time Craft'za is two unique events in one weekend! Join us on Saturday and Sunday, November 18-19, from 10 AM to 4 PM both days. Each day features a totally different lineup of 60 artists (120 total)!
