OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE…
attract top quality artists and crafters, run a professional event, and bring buying customers to the show.
PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT: We are professional promoters with over 25 years of experience. We are available and on site every minute for the entire weekend to answer any issues or concerns you may have. As owners of two craft galleries, we know how to market handcrafted items. We cater to our artists and work hard for your success!
HIGH QUALITY ARTISTS WITH UNIQUE WORK: Through a careful jurying process, only top quality artists are accepted. Wholesale and ‘buy/sell’ items are strictly prohibited. And to ensure that every artist has the best possible chance for success, a maximum number of crafters are accepted in any one discipline.
ESTABLISHED SHOWS: The annual Fall show was first held in the 1970’s and the first Spring show was in 1998. We have an established base of craft buyers who visit us year after year.
HIGH TRAFFIC LOCATION: The Chester Craft shows is not in some field in the middle of no where! It is located in downtown Chester on Main Street where thousands of cars pass by every day! And the show is just steps away from over 80 specialty shops and restaurants.
ADVERTISING AND PROMOTION: With an advertising budget of over $10,000, our goal is to bring buyers to the show. Last year we distributed 30,000 post cards, ran over 20 newspaper ads, and issued many press releases. We also have an e-mail database of over 15,000 names and (as you have found) a professional web site.
