A competitive show comprised of 200 exhibitors, Craftboston Spring is a highly regarded, must-attend event for artists, collectors, and craft enthusiasts. Presented at The Seaport World Trade Center on Boston’s waterfront district (near the Institute of Contemporary Art), Craftboston Spring is conveniently located in one of the city’s rapidly rising cultural hotspots. Craftboston Spring draws its crowds from this burgeoning tourist destination, a loyal local population, and the affluent suburbs of the greater Boston area. It is also minutes from the city’s finest restaurants, shops, museums, and attractions. Additionally, Craftboston Spring features work by emerging artists from leading schools and universities, an artist mentor program, a craft book seller, an educational lecture series, tours for special interest groups, and informational booths promoting nonprofit craft organizations.

Craftboston Holiday’s timing draws large crowds of affluent city collectors ready to buy.
