Edmonds Spring Fest is returning this May!
We’ll be featuring 100 high-quality handmade artists and makers of all kinds–clothing, jewelry, bath & body, art, housewares and more!
This event has fast become an annual favorite here in Edmonds, and we’re bringing it back for this same weekend in 2020, the day before Mother’s Day.
This year we’ll have more comfortable places for you to sit and enjoy your food, more lawn games, and brand new this year: a kids’ maker station! This will be a fun-filled event for the whole family. We are thrilled to be bringing this event back to Edmonds again and look forward to another successful show!
I wasn’t sure what to expect since it was a first time of this event outside of the Seattle Gift show but I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you did this. It exceeded all of my expectations! The buyers were awesome. It was smaller and easier to talk to buyers than at a large show….which is something I really really loved. I often feel like there isn’t enough time to chat with buyers or there are thousands of booths so buyers just rush on by in an attempt to see everything. Plus, the vendors rocked! I picked up some great tidbits and advice from others that have done other events.
The good organization, free parking, easy load in/out, and the customers were SO nice. One of the nicest crowds I’ve seen.
I’m just so happy you all decided to do this and I hope it sticks around. The price-point seemed very fair and I ended up writing 10+ orders. A great way to start the year!
Yes! It was great to be able to take pricing info on the spot to review at the office and everyone we spoke with was very personable and enthusiastic.
Magnuson is a great venue. Several buyers commented on the ease of getting there (vs downtown) and parking accessibility.
I thought this show was handled really well. I loved that there was always support staff around. I had never done a show in Seattle before so I wasn’t sure what to expect or how to maneuver around the city so I brought my husband with me. Once my husband and I figured it all out we became more relaxed and were able to enjoy the day. I really love Seattle. It has a lot of good energy. I had two other people ask me about doing other shows in Seattle and I had more orders after the show. My main goal for doing these events is branding and visibility so I would say it was very successful.
[We got] more orders than we expected – 16 total with 7 new accounts, plus a few promising leads!
Love love loved it. I usually gave $5 when I attend on Saturday or Sunday anyway!
UCU is the best run craft fair I have ever participated in! Thank you for all your work to make it an enjoyable, smooth and informed experience!
It’s amazing to be able to see the work of local artists and makers up close, meet them in person, and hear about their process. I’ve discovered that my life is much more joyful with fewer, better things, and Urban Craft Uprising provides the opportunity to fall in love with ethically-made and sold pieces.
