Kentucky Crafted: The Market
Kentucky Crafted: The Market is the Kentucky Arts Council’s signature event produced each year in the spring featuring the highest quality art, craft, literature, music, film and food found in the state. More than 200 Kentucky Crafted and select out-of-state artists, musicians and artisanal food producers make their finest work available to wholesale buyers and the general public during the three-day event.
Wholesale buyers have the rare opportunity at The Market to place orders directly with producers of Kentucky
traditional and contemporary fine art and craft, as well as publishers of Kentucky related books and
specialty food products.
Doors are opened to the general public during the weekend to purchase work in the retail marketplace. Shoppers can find fine art and craft from Kentucky’s most extraordinary artists, participate in hands-on activities, or take a break at the Kentucky Stage music festival featuring some of the state’s best-loved musicians and performers.
Kentucky is one of a few states in the nation to sponsor a show of this kind for its art and craft businesses. Its 34-year tradition of excellence has not gone unnoticed. Kentucky Crafted: The Market was named the No. 1 Fair & Festival in the country four times by readers of AmericanStyle Magazine. The Southeast Tourism Society has named it a Top 20 Event for 15 years.
