The Inaugural Indiana Artisan Marketplace

Saturday April 16th from 10-6pm and Sunday April 17th from 10-5pm

Indiana State Fairgrounds, Expo Hall

$8 admission and $3 parking

This is a first-time event modeled after the Kentucky Crafted Market that has been taking place for the last 30 years.

There will be over 90 artists and food artisans from 41 Indiana Counties represented.  In addition, there will be 70 artisans from Kentucky since our Hoosier event is launching off of their example.

Sample sea salt pecan chews, chile-spiced fudge, wearable art, water colors and more.

There will be local musicians entertaining in a variety of styles such as Jazz, Bluegrass, Caribbean, Ragtime and Celtic.

The Indiana Artisan was established in 2008 to support the business development of Hoosier entrepreneurs who creat arts, crafts and value-added foods. It started as a joint venture between the Office of Tourism and the Department of Agriculture.  It is now a private, not-for-profit organization.
