November Fine Craft Fair, LancasterWe are deliberate about where we schedule fine craft events.
Whether its the posh Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, the lovely Chase Center on the Riverfront, the shopping district of 300 block of North Queen St or the regal Lancaster County Convention Center, our shows are where it’s at, not tucked away in a run-down location.

We pay just as much attention to details, making sure every aspect from pre-set up through load out is seamless. Plus we now manage tent and exhibit rentals as well.

Unlike for-profit promoters, we focus on you, the all-stars of the show. Our Fine Craft Fairs attract educated shoppers that appreciate fine craft and the made-by-hand spirit.

Application is open to artists and craftsmen nationwide. You do not need to be a member upon applying, but are required to join upon acceptance. You do not need to be a juried member of the Guild.

Entry into our shows is very competitive as applications arrive from artisans who focus on excellence in craftsmanship, resolved design and unique style or voice. Unlike some shows, we will not add booths to meet a quota.

We offer affordable prices for the professional craftsman.  So join the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and become an active member of one of the nation’s largest and most respected craft guilds.
