Kentucky Crafted: The Market is the Kentucky Arts Council’s signature event produced each year in the spring featuring the highest quality art, craft, literature, music, film and food found in the state. More than 200 Kentucky Crafted and select out-of-state artists, musicians and artisanal food producers make their finest work available to the general public.
Kentucky is one of a few states in the nation to sponsor a show of this kind for its art and craft businesses. Its 33-year tradition of excellence has not gone unnoticed. Kentucky Crafted: The Market has been named the No. 1 Fair & Festival in the country four times by readers of AmericanStyle Magazine. The Southeast Tourism Society has named it a Top 20 Event for 16 years.
