Are you ready for Portland’s best holiday art and craft market? Crafty Wonderland is the ultimate local handmade art and craft event of the season.
If you haven’t attended this magical holiday craft fair in the past, let me give you a little background. It all started when two local artists decided to create a venue to sell their own handmade goods and help friends do the same. Since it began in 2006, Crafty Wonderland has become the largest handmade craft show in the Northwest. The craft fair has even expanded into two retail stores you can visit year-round.
Here’s all the information you need to most the most out of this year’s market.
