The Big Crafty is a hand-to-heart celebration of creative exuberance at the heart of Asheville, NC. We believe in supporting creative venturers by crafting warm communities of creative practice.
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 (Thx, Mountain Xpress!) every year since we began in 2008. We’re proud to boost our creative communities in all their go-for-broke, full-of-heart, boundary-pushing, human-scale, all-in, full-tilt glory.
