The 8th Annual Columbus Handmade Craftacular to Feature Artisans and Earth-Friendly Vendors from Across Ohio Eco-friendly, revamped, recycled, homegrown and handcrafted are just a few ways to describe some of the products that will be available at the 8th Annual Columbus Handmade Craftacular, one of the longest-running indie craft shows in Columbus.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 7 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with vendors inside the Whetstone Community Center in Clintonville, a neighborhood in north-central Columbus. More than 70 artists, crafters and other vendors will participate in the one-day, juried craft show that celebrates eco-friendly and locally made products. Clothing, accessories, jewelry, ceramics, bath products, children’s items, home goods and more will be available at the event.

The Craftacular offers a unique chance to meet and mingle with the artists who make these one-of-a-kind items and to support local, small craft businesses.
“The majority of our vendors are from the Columbus area,” says Jamie Hevener, a Craftacular organizer and owner of HevVin Designs, a local business that features custom sewing designs and sewing instruction. “However, the growing popularity of the Craftacular has gained the attention of makers from all over the state. We are pleased to feature several sellers from across Ohio who will join the fun this year!”

This family-friendly event will also feature music, demos by artists, interactive games and more! For hungry shoppers, popular local food trucks will be onsite as well. Shop early! Swag bags will be awarded to the first 50 shoppers the morning of the event with items donated by the Craftacular’s awesome artists.
Support a local pet charity! All funds from the raffle items that are donated by participating artists and vendors go to a local pet charity each year.

Admission is FREE and open to the public.
