Our experience pays off for you.

ACC put on its first craft fair in 1966. This long history translates to a larger draw for our marketplace events and the know-how to create a smooth experience for our artists—so you can focus on making connections and selling your work.

New to ACC marketplaces? Apply as an emerging artist!

We recognize and support artists at different stages of their practice. If you’re new to American Craft Made and consider yourself an emerging artist, we encourage you to apply as an American Craft Made Emerging Artist (formerly known as Hip Pop). Now in its seventh year, our Emerging Artists program offers lower booth fees, show award opportunities, and extensive exhibitor support. Artists may enroll in the program for up to three years. Learn more about the program.

Marketplace events like American Craft Made are just one way we invest in artists’ livelihoods and help connect them to the people who will buy and cherish their work. Learn more about what we do.
