fall + holiday 2016 midwest craft shows
For makers seeking indie craft shows to do for the rest of the year, we have created this master list of the best fall and holiday craft shows around the Midwest for September to December 2016! If you’re planning to make the craft show rounds in the Midwest this fall and winter, you’ve got to start thinking about applications in the summer. (Check out our advice for applying to indie craft shows, too.)
We’ve included shows within driving distance of Cincinnati, which includes Ohio and surrounding states plus major craft shows from around the Midwest and Eastern United States. Note: We only organize Crafty Supermarket, so if you have questions about the other shows listed, you’ll have to contact their organizers directly. We’ll add more show dates as we find them, and feel free to mention yours in the comments!
