Friday, March 13, 2020 - 10:00 AM to Sunday, March 15, 2020 - 04:00 PM

In an abundance of caution and in setting the example for social distancing in managing COVID-19, the decision has been made to postpone the Kentucky Crafted Market 2020  scheduled for March 13-15 at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena.

This decision was made today in conjunction with the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet and the Kentucky Arts Council, as part of the Commonwealth’s ongoing effort to ensure the health and wellness of the public as Kentucky fights aggressively to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


The Kentucky Crafted Market is the Kentucky Arts Council’s premier marketing event of Kentucky artistry produced each year. The show features the highest quality art, craft, literature, music and food found in the state. More than 200 Kentucky Crafted and select out-of-state artists, musicians and artisanal food producers make their finest work available to wholesale buyers and the general public during the three-day event.

Wholesale buyers have the rare opportunity at The Market to place orders directly with producers of Kentucky traditional and contemporary fine art and craft, as well as publishers of Kentucky related books and specialty food products.

Doors are opened to the general public for two days each year. Shoppers can find fine art and craft from Kentucky’s most extraordinary artists, participate in hands-on arts educational activities, or take a break at the Kentucky Stage music festival featuring some of the state’s best-loved musicians and performers.

Kentucky is one of a few states in the nation to sponsor a show of this kind for its art and craft businesses. Its 37-year tradition of excellence has not gone unnoticed. The Kentucky Crafted Market was named the No. 1 Fair & Festival in the country four times by readers of AmericanStyle Magazine. The Southeast Tourism Society has named it a Top 20 Event for 15 years.
