Craftin’ Outlaws growing, adding Spring event
The alternative craft fair that’s provided you with kick-ass gifts every holiday since 2005 is adding a Spring event for 2013, expanding in size, and moving to Veterans Memorial.
“While we have loved working with the Gateway over the last several years, we need more room for vendors to breath and customers to shop,” says Event Organizer Megan Green. “The fine folks at Experience Columbus helped point me in the right direction by finding a facility that could hold our vendors and our guests.”
With the move, there will be space for 75 vendor spots with the possibility of adding more for the holiday show. All vendors will receive a 10×10 foot booth space. The show will be located entirely on one floor and within the same room.
“A spring show is a way to continue our name and offer the high caliber artists people come to expect for Craftin’ Outlaws,” she says. “While half of our vendors are local to Central Ohio, we draw artisans from all over the Midwest.”
The Spring Fling will take place Saturday, April 20th, just a few weeks before Mother’s Day on May 12th. Perfect for finding something amazing for your mom. There will also be more variety offered as the holiday show typically had items geared for the holidays.
Craftin’ Christmas will be held on November 16th.
Applications for the spring show are $10. Vendor applications will be available Friday, February 1st through February 28th. Applications for the holiday show will be available at the end of summer.
At Craftin’ Outlaws, you will find concessions and tasty adult beverages. There will be places to sit and enjoy your drink. Making its return will be the very famous Plinko board with handmade goods from vendors and participating sponsors, with proceeds going to local charity Project: Zero Ohio.
Green hopes to add a stroller station, where a stroller can be parked, a diaper changed, or other child needs attended to.
The spring show will be free all day long. Parking is $7 and there is adjacent parking across the street also for $7.
