Join over 120 Indiana and Kentucky exhibitors on March 25-26
Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center in Indianapolis

 

Only once a year, the state’s highest-quality Artisans come together — at the Indiana Artisan Marketplace. Talk with artisans at the top of their craft, recognized by the state for their exceptional art and food. Taste their wines and foods, see what makes them the best, and take advantage of the opportunity to take home some of their outstanding work made in studios, workshops and kitchens here in the Hoosier State.

When:
Saturday March 25, 2017 10 am to 6 pm
Sunday March 26, 2017 10 am to 5 pm

Location: The Exposition Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds
1202 E 38th St, Indianapolis, Indiana 46205

Tickets: $10 at the door, 14 and younger admitted free

Participating Artisans: Nearly 150 art, fine craft and food artisans are on-site so you can meet them and talk about their work. Of this group, 24 will be creating their work in their booths so you can see how it is made.

Parking: Four shuttles will run this continuous route all weekend. Park anywhere on the Fairgrounds, take the FREE shuttle to the Expo Hall (#22 on the shuttle map), enjoy your day at the Marketplace, leave your purchases at “Package Pick Up” just inside the Marketplace front door, shuttle back to your vehicle, and drive to the Expo Hall where a volunteer will bring your purchases to your car before you depart.
