Calling All Crafters! It's Time to Apply for the Detroit Urban Craft Fair!

The Detroit Urban Craft Fair is one of our favorite annual events. This yearly gathering of approximately 100 vendors is a finely curated event that features an array of different products in different price points and unlike other shows, you have to make something to be part of it. This craft fair does not allow anyone who sells vintage goods or chain items to participate. The ladies of Handmade Detroit work very hard to put together a truly unique experience and aren't afraid to switch up the booths from year to year. So if you have applied in the past and gotten turned down, there is no reason to believe that you won't make it into the show in the future.

The key to getting into this fair is showcasing your goods in the best possible light, using clear photos and descriptive explanations when you are filling out the paperwork. The more you can tell them about what are you planning to sell, the better! It is also important to remember that the designer must be at their booth throughout the weekend. The Detroit Urban Craft Fair is meant to be an interactive experience for the shoppers. So if you don't plan to be at your booth, don't bother to apply!

To apply for the show you must fill out this online application and send it in before September, 26th. It is smart to get it in as early as possible because there server gets overloaded on the last day and they do not under any circumstances accept late applications. So if you miss the deadline, you will have to wait for next years show! To learn more about Handmade Detroit and the Detroit Urban Craft fair visit their website here.
