This coming weekend amidst the holiday craze is the debut of the Jackalope Arts and Crafts Fair here in Phoenix Arizona. This fair located at Steele Indian School Park, will house over 200 juried exhibitors that strictly sell handmade wares. These range from local artists, craftsmen, and DIY enthusiasts who have a passion for making specialty goods. With an emphasis on the opportunity for the community to meet the makers behind their quality products, shoppers can expect to find trendsetting indie goods from original fashion and jewelry design, ceramics and paper goods, innovative home decor and housewares, art and photography, and much more.
Jackalope Arts began in 2015 as a handmade arts & crafts fair with high-quality vendors from across the country. The semi-annual and multi-city event takes place in Denver CO, Old Pasadena, CA and now in Phoenix, AZ. Their focus is on “community meets artisan” and creating a family friendly event that brings together the local community. Each vendor is selected by a jury based on the high skill set within their respective fields. Artists of several genres were selected for the show, to keep the content of the fair vibrant and interesting for attendees.
This weekend along with shopping for fun and unique gifts the Jackalope Fair also offers workshops for children and adults to learn how to create some fun crafts of their own. Supplies are provided by Arizona Art Supply and Rainbow Bliss Botanicals and include such crafts as homemade Christmas cards and making mini monoprints. Food will also be on sight with food trucks ranging from country cooking to frozen yogurt.
This 2 Day shopping destination is great for picking up those last-minute and unique gifts that are sure to make this holiday season a little fun and relaxed.
