FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 28, 2012) — Kentucky Crafted: The Market, which is coming to the Lexington Convention Center this weekend, has been voted as No. 1 in the nation for the third consecutive year by the readers of AmericanStyle magazine. No other American craft fair can make that claim. This is AmericanStyle’s eighth annual Fairs and Festivals competition, and Kentucky Crafted: The Market has been in the top spot four of the past five years.
“Kentucky Crafted maintains a lock on the top spot for the third year in a row, proving you can’t beat its ‘bluegrass blend’ of traditional and contemporary fine craft,” writes Kat McKerrow of AmericanStyle magazine, the leading journal for fine craft collectors in North America.
Kentucky Crafted: The Market – where tradition meets cutting edge – features more than 150 artists offering shoppers jewelry, wearable art, home decor, furniture, paintings, prints, photographs and artisan foods along with Kentucky-related books, CDs and DVDs. The Market also brings an exciting lineup of hourly performances by musicians to the Kentucky Stage and offers workshops and hands-on activities .
