Description:

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 2020 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.  This year’s show will be held Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a virtual platform. Just one ticket is good for admission to both huge locations! Cost for Saturday and Sunday is $5.
