The Big Crafty is a hand-to-heart celebration of creative exuberance held twice annually in the heart of beautiful Asheville, NC. Our guiding principle is that supporting creative venturers makes for a stronger community, and our aim is to make doing so fun.
We extend warm welcome to the rich pageant of basement and backyard artists, juried prize-winners, and those who delight in them. And we’re so grateful to have been voted Best Arts/Crafts Fair in the annual Mountain Xpress readers’ poll every year since we began in 2008. We invite you to join us in supporting the creative community in all its go-for-broke, full-of-heart, boundary-pushing, human-scale, all-in, full-tilt glory.
