Virtual Detroit Urban Craft Fair

Your Home, Worldwide
http://detroiturbancraftfair.com
This year’s Detroit Urban Craft Fair will be held virtually with the health and safety of our vendors and shoppers in mind. We will again feature over 100 handmade crafters and indie artists, but now over the course of 9 weeks, on both our social media feeds and the DUCF website. Be sure to check out our DUCF FAQs at DetroitUrbanCraftFair.com for all the details of what we have planned for vendors!

This is our first virtual fair, and we are enthusiastic about helping bring our shoppers and makers together in this new way so we can still spend our time together celebrating handmade, apart but together.

For 2020, DUCF will be solely focused on makers and artists within Michigan, to promote the creativity within our great state. Again: Vendor Applications are open to Michigan makers ONLY this year. Thank you for your understanding! We’re keeping it hyper-local this year.
