Why Take Part in Craft Week

Your story matters to us—and our audience.
What is craft without the maker's story? We’ve designed Craft Week to be an immersive platform where people can discover who you are and what goes into your work.

One simple shopping experience.
Our ecommerce platform lets people add multiple artists' work to their cart and check out in a single transaction. Filters and curated collections make browsing a breeze.

We're here to help you thrive.
Exhibiting in our marketplaces makes you part of our family, and American Craft Council team members are available personally for onboarding and support throughout Craft Week.

Marketing to a focused audience.
We will promote you and your work to over 56K email contacts and to more than 82K followers on social media while tapping into new audiences.

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.

About the American Craft Council

ACC is a national nonprofit that believes in the value of things made by hand, the people who create them, and the meaning that creativity brings to everyday life. Online marketplace events like Baltimore Craft Week are just one way we invest in artists’ livelihoods and help connect them to the people who will buy and cherish their work.

Craft Week’s Regional Element

By collaborating and co-creating with local artist communities, ACC hopes to build awareness and appreciation for the craft that makes different parts of our country beautiful and unique. Much like ACC’s yearly flagship show at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore Craft Week will highlight regional artists and communities alongside artists working from across the country, providing our national audience the chance to experience the creativity and innovation happening in this city.
