The 7th Annual Portland Fine Craft Show Returns to Free Street, August 27th
PORTLAND: Presented by Shop Maine Craft, the Portland Fine Craft Show returns for its seventh annual event; a festive, one-day, outdoor juried fine craft show in downtown Portland, Maine on Saturday, August 27th from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The show is located in the heart of Portland’s arts district in the large parking area at 120 Free Street.
The beloved show features over 100 artists from all over Maine and the greater Northeast area exhibiting in basketry, ceramics, decorative and wearable fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, printmaking, stone, and wood as well as several outreach booths from Maine arts organizations and sponsors. The show remains one of the only Maine craft shows open to New England artists beyond Maine and is renowned for its exceptional quality and high attendance.
The one-day show has become a staple summer event for both local craft enthusiasts and visitors to Maine who happily anticipate seeing their favorite and familiar exhibitors while equally looking forward to seeing new juried artists each year. Guests of the show can shop handcrafted items to live with, wear, and cherish.
NEW SHOW PRODUCER: Established and formerly produced by the Maine Crafts Association, the Portland Fine Craft Show will now be produced by its new sibling organization, Shop Maine Craft. Shop Maine Craft is a hub of craft artists' resources, retail sales, fine craft shows, and special events designed to support Maine’s creative economy by creating income opportunities for craft artists. Shop Maine Craft directly supports individual craft artists as well as the Maine Crafts Association, a non-profit organization serving Maine artists, their studio practices, businesses, and community since 1983. Shop Maine Craft now manages the programs, developed by the MCA, which directly focus on shopping, including two retail galleries, several shows and markets, and a Webshop.
