Apply to Craftstravaganza 2018

We are currently accepting applications for artists to participate in the 2018 spring Craftstravaganza to be held on May 12. Applications are due by January 31, 2018. You will be notified of acceptance by February 10th.

NOTE: This year's event will be held at the Grain Belt Bottling House, home of the fall Craft'za. After 12 years at the MN State Fairgrounds, we are moving in response to artist and consumer feedback. This venue provides:

  • Outside food options
  • A centralized location
  • Heat!

There is no cost to apply. If accepted, there is a $125 fee to participate. We will collect entries until the January 31 deadline and then our jury will review all applications to select for quality of work, diversity of products, and variety of price points.


Craft'za is held at the Grain Belt Bottling House in Northeast Minneapolis.

Street parking is freely available in the neighborhood. We have a parking lot also.
