The Big Crafty revives the tradition of the community bazaar, a lively celebration of handmade commerce, featuring the most exciting artists and crafters around. Our fun-for-all-ages events are held twice annually in the heart of beautiful Asheville, NC. Our guiding principle is that supporting creative venturers makes for a stronger community, and our aim is to make doing so fun.
We’re so grateful to have been voted Best Arts/Crafts Fair in the annual Mountain Xpress readers’ poll every year since we began in 2008.
We extend warm welcome to our rich pageant of basement and backyard artists, our juried prize-winners, and those who delight in them.
We’re grateful for the hearty support of the Western NC community, and in particular the Asheville Area Arts Council, the City of Asheville, and Asheville Art Museum, for their support of our work and our fun.
The Big Crafty supports the creative community in all its go-for-broke, full-of-heart, boundary-pushing, human-scale, all-in, full-tilt glory. Make the world you need
