Urban Craft UprisinG WINTER SHOW

Winter 2023
DECEMBER 1st-3rd

Urban Craft Uprising is Seattle’s favorite craft show, established in 2005. At UCU, fans can choose from a wide variety of hand-crafted goods, including clothing of all types, jewelry, gifts, bags, wallets, buttons, accessories, aprons, children’s goods, toys, housewares, furniture, paper goods, candles, kits, geekery, art, food, and much, much more.

Each show is carefully curated and juried to ensure the best mix of crafts and arts, along with quality and originality. This bi-annual show features over 150 vendors excelling in the world of craft, art and design. Over the course of its 20 years, UCU has garnered such a following attention that nearly 15,000 fans swarm to the show over the course of the weekend.

Hundreds of fans are lined up before our doors open to receive our famous swag bags full of goodies from our vendors and lovely sponsors. This show is free and fun for the whole family! We look forward to seeing you!

The most convenient parking option is the Mercer Garage (Third Avenue N. & Roy Street), right across the street from the Exhibition Hall.

Parking in Seattle can be expensive, and we are aware of this. Unfortunately, we  have zero control over the rates of the parking garages, at the Seattle Center or otherwise. We encourage you to take public transit or to carpool if at all possible. Particularly during the winter show when nearby parking garages inflate their rates to take advantage of the Nutcracker attendees, parking in the garage across the street can be as expensive as $30! We wish this weren’t the case, but this is absolutely out of our control, and it is the unfortunate downside of a venue that is large enough to accommodate our show, and as centrally located as the Ex Hall is.

We encourage you to take advantage of this site or this app to find the most reasonable option you can when you arrive, to carpool and split the cost with friends, or to ditch the car altogether if you’re able! There are also some great and cheap parking options in South Lake Union on the weekends, which is really not too far of a walk from the Seattle Center.

I can’t choose one favorite moment! Customers came in ready to shop, I sold a lot, I had a wonderful booth neighbor, volunteers came around to relieve me for a few minutes, and I met and shopped some fellow vendors. Thank you for an amazing day!
