The 30th year of Kentucky Crafted: The Market will take place March 1-4 at the Lexington Convention Center to showcase some of Kentucky’s finest artists and craftsmen.
The Market has received numerous awards from American Style Magazine, the Kentucky Tourism Council and the Southeast Tourism Society.
With two days dedicated to wholesale buyers, the Market is a rare opportunity for them to place orders directly with producers of Kentucky traditional and contemporary fine art and craft as well as producers of Kentucky-related books, musical recordings, films and specialty food products.
Kentucky holds the distinction of being one of the few states in the country to sponsor a wholesale show for its art and craft businesses.
During the two public days, retail shoppers can purchase fine art and craft from the same selection of outstanding Kentucky artists.
Children can participate in a number of hands-on craft activities and the whole family can enjoy performances at Kentucky on Stage, including live musical performances, film screenings and readings by Kentucky poets laureate.
Trade only days are March 1 from 1-8 p.m. and March 2 from 10 a.m-2 p.m. March 3 from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and March 4 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. are open to the public. Admission is $10.
