Handmade Arcade

  • David L Lawrence Convention Center 1000 Fort Duquesne Boulevard Pittsburgh, PA, 15222 United States (map)

Handmade Arcade, Pittsburgh’s first and largest independent craft fair, was founded in 2004 to provide grassroots, independent craft-based artists with opportunities to show and sell their wares; to create an alternative to traditional craft and fine art fairs in the region; and to connect the local indie craft community with the national DIY movement. One of the region's most anticipated annual arts events, Handmade Arcade will feature: 180-plus innovative craft-based artists, makes, producers and designers from Pittsburgh, the region and the U.S. in a curated and juried marketplace. Returning for its 14th year on Saturday, December 8, 2018, from 11  a.m. to 7 p.m., at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. One of Pittsburgh’s most anticipated annual events, attracting more than 9,000 attendees, Handmade Arcade offers an authentic, engaging and personal shopping experience in featuring innovative, affordable and hand-crafted products made by some of the country’s top indie crafters, who are all on-site at the event to talk with attendees about their creative process, unique product lines and background.

Please join Simon's Granddaughter for her fourth year showing at this amazing show. Admission is Free and the crafters selling are cream of the crop ! Custom Orders placed by November 23rd can be picked up at this event.
