This is a call to all the makers that want to get their goods into local homes this holiday season. It's time to apply to the Detroit Urban Craft Fair! Every year, this highly curated event elevates its selection and offers something new to its shoppers. It is a truly one-of-a-kind weekend experience that you can only get in Detroit. That being said, a lot of people want to be a part of this event, so it's not as easy to get in as you might hope it would be. You have to apply (that part is easy in theory) and be approved for the show. How do you get approved? You COMPLETELY fill out every section of the application, no matter how boring or mundane. Then, take some time and really sell who you are, what you do, and how you think it would elevate this year's event. What are you going to have on your table, how will it be laid out, and why do you think people have to have this under their holiday trees?  The more creative you are in crafting your application, the more likely you are to be picked by the jury of people that will be making the selections. Around 120 makers will make it into this show and then they will start to announce all the cool things that they have cooked up for the show. So, if you want in, set aside some time, get creative with your words and photos, and apply to be a part of one of the most magical local events this December.

The Detroit Urban Craft Fair will take place on December 2nd ,3rd and 4th, 2022 at The Masonic Temple in Detroit. You can learn more about The Detroit Urban Craft Fair here and you can apply to be a part of this year's show here. Follow DUCF on social media to keep up with them all year long here.
