Behold! It’s showtime! Craft show time, that is, and we are super excited to see a lot of our favorites returning this year after a 2020 hiatus due to the pandemic. Cincinnati is home to numerous crafters, makers and artists, and craft shows are a great way for you to find cool, unique gifts that aren’t likely to be found on Amazon or other big box retailers.
With COVID-19 cases surging again, some craft shows have canceled, so we suggest double-checking event websites/social media or calling before attending, but this is the planned schedule of craft shows in the Greater Cincinnati area this holiday shopping season so far.
If your organization is hosting a craft show and you don’t see it on our list, please send the details to [email protected] with “craft show” in the subject line. We’ll get it added.
