Get involved with the holiday show!

Crafty Supermarket’s holiday show is huge: 100 handmade vendors come from all around the Midwest to flaunt their best work for thousands of shoppers. To help us make the craft show the best it can be, we enlist volunteers and work with sponsors — and here’s how you can get involved:

Volunteering

At our big holiday show on Nov. 28 at the Music Hall Ballroom, we have a couple of opportunities for people to help out. (And when you assist us for a couple hours, you’ll get one of our famous swag bags!) Volunteers help us out in one of four areas: helping shoppers know where everything is, assisting vendors who need a break, helping load in at the beginning of the day and cleaning up at the end of the day. You can learn more and submit your info here. We’ll get back to you a few weeks before the show with the schedule. (Note that we sometimes get more volunteer applications than we can take, but we’ll get back to you either way!)

Partnerships

We work with all kinds of local organizations who love handmade and want to help spread the word. From arts nonprofits and landmark institutions to DIY shops and enterprises, if you support the maker movement, we’d love to work with you! Learn more about partnership opportunities here and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have an idea of how we can work together!

Crafty Supermarket is a big undertaking. If you’ve ever been, you know what we’re talking about: dozens of handmade vendors who drive from hours away to be with us, and thousands of shoppers who want to see what they brought. To help us make the craft show run smoothly, we count on our dutiful volunteers and sponsors to give us a hand and help spread the word!

help out at our big holiday show!

Our holiday craft show on Nov. 23 will bring 80+ makers from all over the U.S. and thousands of shoppers to the Music Hall Ballroom in Cincinnati. But we couldn’t make it happen without the dozens of volunteers who help out!

Volunteers help us out the day of the show by greeting shoppers, assisting vendors and directing foot traffic. Shifts are about two hours long, and in exchange for your hard work you’re guaranteed one of our famous swag bags. Plus it’s good craft karma, and you were totally going to be at the show anyway. :)

Learn more and sign up in our form here! You’ll be asked to select what times you’re available and what kind of activities you’d like to do. We can’t guarantee everyone who signs up to be a volunteer a shift, but we’ll get back to everyone about volunteer assignments by early November.
