LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Kentucky Crafted Market, the Kentucky Arts Council’s showcase event featuring the best art and craft in the commonwealth, will return to the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena, March 12-13 in Lexington.
The Market will be open to the public 10 a.m.-5 p.m. March 12 and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. March 13. The event will be open only to registered wholesale buyers for Trade Only Day, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. March 11.
More than 80 of Kentucky’s best visual and craft artists, all adjudicated members of the arts council’s Kentucky Crafted program, will exhibit and sell their work at The Market.
Tickets are $10 for adults. Children 12 and under get in free with paid adult admission. In order to minimize contact, we highly encourage you to purchase your tickets online in advance. This will also allow you to enter Alltech Arena as soon as you arrive on the days of the event. As of today, masking is required in all state-owned buildings, so please come prepared with an appropriate face covering.
Kentucky Crafted is well known across the region to retailers and to individuals alike as their best opportunity to obtain high-value arts and craft products from the top artists in the commonwealth. Sellers get into the event only after applying and having their goods adjudicated by a panel created by the Kentucky Arts Council. The first day is open to dealers only and the second and third days are open to everyone.
The event has shifted locations several times over the years between Lexington, Louisville, and Frankfort. It has taken place for several years now at the main arena facility at state Horse Park just north of Lexington near the intersection of I-75 and Ironworks Pike.
