When is the next Big Crafty?
Saturday December 2, 2017 is our Opening Presale. Admission is $5, and the hours are 1-8PM.

Sunday, December 3, 2017 is free and fun for all from 11AM-6PM.

Where is it?
It’s held inside the US Cellular Center in downtown Asheville.

Is this a juried show?
It is. Our vendors go through a highly competitive selection process, and we are so proud of the caliber of work that our artists bring each year. Our event has, in fact, been voted the area’s best art and craft festival every year since we began in 2008.

How can I help out?
We have volunteer opportunities both before and during the event. Please contact us (crafty@thebigcrafty.com) for more information. If your business has something to contribute or wishes to help sponsor this event, please contact us!

Is this an indoor event?

What about inclement weather?
It’s a rain or shine event.

There are several parking garages and lots in the vicinity, and on Sundays street parking is free across downtown.
