Art & Craft Fairs Directory

2018 Art & Craft Fairs Guide - new deadline: November 17

The Wisconsin Arts Board joined the Department of Tourism in 2011, and since then we have been working together to enhance the relationship between the arts and tourism. One of our collaborations is the creation and distribution of the popular Art & Craft Fairs Guide.

The Department will continue our partnership with Madden Media to produce an all-new Art & Craft Fairs guide scheduled for publication in late January, 2018. Please submit your 2018 directory listings through our new application form. Username: "Wisconsin" Password: "wia2018"

The deadline to submit your application for a listing has been extended to Friday, November 17, 2017. 

Once you have completed filling out the application, you will be sent to a confirmation page to review. Then hit the “submit” button on that page. You will receive a "Thank you"  and a confirmation email will be sent to the contact email entered in the portal.

After submitting your listing, an invoice for the fee will be mailed to you. Listing fees are calculated according to a formula (Number of Exhibitors x Lowest Booth Fee x .025) with the amount (minimum of $25/maximum $250) invoiced to you. 

All art and craft fairs held in the state of Wisconsin and open to the general public are eligible for inclusion in the directory. In order to be included in the directory, event sponsors must submit the form AND a listing fee.

NEW in 2018: 

This guide will also include 12 advertising pages available for purchase in ½ or full page buys on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact Cheryl Touhy at for more information. Details are also available on our Co-op Advertising page

We look forward to working with the arts community to promote these fairs around the state.
