1 Week Countdown to Craft Expo: What to Expect

We are at full speed ahead in preparation for next weekend’s Craft Expo event. And while we work, there are 170+ artists from across the country starting their journey to Guilford to share their artistry with all of YOU! They are as excited to be back as we are, and we hope you will join us at some point during the weekend of July 14-16.

Tips for Attending Guilford Craft Expo

Check the exhibitor list: Look for the list of participating artists and browse through their work. This will give you an idea of what types of crafts will be available and which artists you’d like to visit.

Bring cash and cards: Entry is cash only. While some artists may accept credit cards or other electronic payment methods, it’s always a good idea to have some cash on hand. This way, you’ll be prepared for any situation and won’t miss out on a purchase if electronic payment options are limited.

Dress comfortably: There will be benches and some shady spots, but be prepared for walking. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing for warm weather. You are welcome to bring in water bottles.

Plan for breaks: It’s always a good idea to plan for breaks during your visit. We have a sizable food court area set up with tables and umbrellas – live music too! Take some time to relax, have a snack or meal, and recharge before continuing your exploration.

Enjoy the experience: Guilford Craft Expo is not just about shopping—it’s also about appreciating the artistry and craftsmanship of the artists. Take the time to engage with them, ask questions about their work, and learn more about their techniques and inspirations.

Finally, remember to have fun! This is an inspiring event!
