Craft Festival returns to Reno October 25 -27
Reno, Nevada - This high quality event was established at the old Centennial Coliseum in the Spring of 1981. The Coliseum was renamed in 1982 to the Reno Convention Center. The Craft Festival continued its run of successful events until the fall of 2006.
Economic conditions resulted in the Festival not being able to produce an event in Reno the past several years. Now that the economy has improved the promoters are looking forward to returning to Reno.
The Craft Festival still holds the Convention Center record for attendance of over 25,000 during our 1984 festival.
On October 25, 26, 27, 150 craft workers from all over the United States will be showing their fine wares. There are people exhibiting at this annual festival from as far away as Montana, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Washington and Oregon. This show demands that all exhibitors present and maintain high standards of originality. The Craft Festival does not allow any mass produced, imported or commercial items to be sold at this event. All work featured for sale and display is created by the artist in the booth. Craft categories include: jewelry, pottery, leather, woodwork, fiber, glass, sculpture, toys, fine art, and weaving.
"Come see for yourself, the quality of the show is unsurpassed," says promoter Steve Powers. "Real artists and craftspeople are pretty much a vanishing bred. It's not an easy way to make a living. They travel thousands of miles each year hoping to make a profit so they can put food on their families table, pay their mortgages and keep self-employed," Steve continues.
The Craft Festival is a handmade in America craft show. Made in America craft shows are very rare these days. Most promoters have gone to allowing imports and commercial items into their shows. Steve Powers maintains his show standards by allowing only original handmade in America work by the exhibitor. His loyal customers expect that and he has delivered for the past 31 years.
