Craft Expo 2020, held on the historic Guilford Green, is Connecticut’s premier outdoor show of fine American craft. Now in its 63rd year, Craft Expo is one of the top-ranked and longest-running craft shows in the Northeast.
Craft Expo showcases high quality works from over 180 artists who travel in from across the country. Works are presented in a range of media, including clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, printing, photography, sculpture, and wood. The event features live music, gourmet food trucks, beer garden, creative activities for families, live demonstrations, a silent auction of artist donated work, a Guilford Art Center student art tent and more. Craft Expo takes place in the bucolic town of Guilford, CT, located half-way between Boston and New York. Guilford is best known for its picturesque and historical town green and access to shoreline points, making it a popular summertime destination. Craft Expo is a much-anticipated annual event, attended by over 7,000 residents and visitors who are educated, knowledgeable and strong supporters of art and craft.
The show is organized and promoted by Guilford Art Center, a non-profit school, shop and gallery serving the shoreline community for over 50 years. It conducts extensive marketing and advertising campaigns for the show, reaching out to audiences across the Northeast.
