Ky. Crafted Comes to Town March 2-3

More than 200 artists, musicians and artisanal food producers will return to Lexington for Kentucky Crafted: The Market on March 2 and 3 at the Lexington Convention Center.

The Market features thousands of Kentucky-made products for sale.

The Market will also include live music, interactive activities and exhibits for adults and children, such as crafts with the Living Arts & Science Center or a paint pendulum by The Explorium.

The Kentucky Arts Council will present a special exhibition this year about the art and tradition of Kentuckians who are masters in the making and repairing of guitars, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, dulcimers and other stringed instruments.

Kentucky Crafted has been named the No. 1 fair and festival in the country four times by AmericanStyle Magazine.

The event will be held from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. March 2, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. March 3.

Advanced tickets are $8 one-day, and $12 two-day. Tickets purchased after Feb. 27 are $10 one-day, $15 two-day. Children 15 and under are admitted for free with a paying adult.
