Why YOU should come to our amazing craft show!

 

  • Our Spring Craft Show is located at our beautiful Central Dauphin High School.  We host approximately 175 crafters selling handmade jewelry, soaps and lotions, delightful food items, home and yard pieces, and more.

  • Our crafters sell only top quality, specially-made, unique, handcrafted items – no commercially made or resell items are permitted at our show.

  • We offer a café with both breakfast and lunch items with delicious options to satisfy your shopping hunger cravings.

  • A raffle of handcrafted pieces made by crafters is a highlight of our show.  Raffle tickets are affordable, and drawings are made throughout the day.

  • There is no admission charge for our Spring Craft Show, and of course, parking is free.

 

 

Why YOU should apply to be a crafter at our craft show!

 

  • We welcome an amazing crowd of shoppers who come to wander through our hallways, gymnasium and cafeteria. It is estimated more than 1500 shoppers attended our show last year.  Because of the top-quality handcrafted merchandise being sold, our return crafters rave about sales potential.

  • Our Spring Craft Show is a sold-out event of our 210 vendor spaces.  Typically, we have a 75% returning crafter rate. Multiple spaces can be combined to create longer or deeper spaces.

  • Over 150 amazing Band Booster Volunteers on the day of the show help ensure success.  Volunteers will help you unload your vehicle and carry your merchandise to your crafter space.  Throughout the show, carts of café items will be brought around for crafters, including free coffee! At the end of the day, our team of volunteers will help deliver your items back to your car.

CRAFTERS INFORMATION

About Our Show

The Spring Craft Show is held indoors in Central Dauphin High School, 437 Piketown Rd., Harrisburg,17112. Admission and parking are free. The show includes nearly 175 crafters, concessions, and a raffle throughout the day. Ample free parking is available for all. The school is located just off Route 39 in Harrisburg, PA with easy access from Interstates 81 and 83.

 

Merchandise

Because handcrafted items are our emphasis, the Spring Craft Show traditionally draws many shoppers looking for specially-made, unique items. We are not a juried show, but to ensure our reputation for top quality, handcrafted items, which is the expectation and main attraction of this event in our community, we reserve the right to refuse crafter assignments for anyone offering commercially made, franchised or resell items. We do not allow animals, fish or burning of candles, incense or potpourri.

Crafter Space

We appreciate our returning crafters! We give priority to crafters from last year’s Spring Craft Show who submit timely applications. We then carefully review new applications and assign crafters to the space most appropriate for the merchandise you offer and your space requirements. We will consider and try to honor special requests for space location; however, we cannot guarantee them.

 

Setup and Breakdown

Setup begins at 6:00 a.m. the day of the show. Volunteers will be available to assist in unloading your vehicle. After unloading, please move all vehicles to the assigned vendor parking area. Do not mount, tape, or nail anything on walls. Show is from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Break down time begins at 3:00 p.m. No exceptions to this rule; crafters who disregard this rule will not be invited back.

Concessions

We will serve food and drink all day from the school cafeteria. We offer free coffee all day to each crafter! You will have the opportunity to purchase lunch from a traveling food cart with the menu items available at the cafeteria.
