get involved with the show

Crafty Supermarket is a big undertaking. If you’ve ever been, you know what we’re talking about: dozens of handmade vendors who drive from hours away to be with us, and thousands of shoppers who want to see what they brought. To help us make the craft show run smoothly, we count on our dutiful volunteers and sponsors to give us a hand and help spread the word!


At our big show on Nov. 29 at Cincinnati’s beautiful Music Hall, we have a couple of opportunities to help out. (And when you assist us for a couple hours, you’ll get one of our famous swag bags!) Volunteers can help shoppers know where everything is, assist vendors who need a break, and help load in at the beginning of the day and clean up at the end of the day. You can learn more and submit your info here. We’ll get back to you a few weeks before the show with the schedule. (Note that we sometimes get more volunteer applications than we can take, but we’ll get back to you either way!)


We work with all kinds of local organizations who love handmade and want to help spread the word. From arts nonprofits and landmark institutions to DIY shops and enterprises, if you support the maker movement, we’d love to work with you! Our media partners this year are Cincinnati Magazine and 91.7 WVXU. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.

holiday show apps are closed!

Applications for the Crafty Supermarket holiday show are now closed! We’re going to spend the next two weeks going through applications, and we will notify everyone who applied of their acceptance status by Sept. 15. If you’re accepted, you’ll have until Oct. 1 to pay the remainder of the table fee. If you don’t pay your table fee by Oct. 1, we’ll offer the space to another crafter who applied before the deadline.

I missed the deadline! Can I still apply?

We get way more applications for the show than we can accept, so we can’t allow any late applications out of fairness to crafters who applied before the deadline. If a spot opens up from a vendor being unable to attend the show, we select alternates from the people who applied before the deadline.

If you want to apply to be in our next show, be sure to follow us here on the website, on Facebook or via our e-newsletter. We broadcast our upcoming opportunities in all those places!
