The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri is excited to announce
its holiday favorite, the 49th Annual Arts and Crafts Extravaganza, to be held Nov. 23-24
at the Osage Centre and Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.
This highly anticipated craft show will feature more than 300 high quality crafters,
including many of the finest artisans from across the Midwest. Last year, an estimated
14,000 visitors came through the doors at both locations, making it one of the largest
craft fairs in the Southeast Missouri region.
Each booth must sell handmade items and, as a requirement, must pass a rigorous
inspection process to participate in the Extravaganza. After the inspection, judges will
select and name one booth “Best of Show”, per each location, for the 2019 fair.
Attendees can make ready for the holidays with purchases of homemade Christmas
candies, fresh roasted nuts, savory holiday dips and sauces, honey, baked goods,
homemade jelly and salsa, and delicious fudge and peanut brittle—all available at this
year’s Fair.
The craft fair will also feature home enhancing décor like sculptures, framed original art
and photography, handmade pottery, leather goods, gourmet dog treats and fashions,
wearable art, wood items of every description, toys, knitted, quilted and baby apparel,
fabulous wreaths and table decorations, and a wide array of jewelry.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be at the Show Me Center, booth number 125! Come and bring
the whole family in a meet n’ greet and be sure to grab a picture with the couple from
the North Pole. They will be here Saturday and part of the day Sunday.
This year’s show will be held Saturday, Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov.
24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Just one ticket is good for admission to both huge locations! Cost for Saturday and
Sunday is $5.
