Urban Craft UprisinG SUMMER SHOW

Saturday & Sunday, July 29th & 30th
UCU Summer Show

Some backstory about our show: Urban Craft Uprising was founded in the winter of 2005 to showcase the work of independent crafters, artists and designers — to provide a unique, high quality, hand-crafted alternative to “big box” stores and mass produced goods.

Since its early beginnings at its first holiday show with just 50 craft booths and overflowing crowds, Urban Craft Uprising now holds the largest indie craft event in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest with its Winter Show. In 2009, Urban Craft Uprising expanded its horizons to include a summer show, which has become an annual event, in conjunction with an exclusive wholesale event which allows our vendors to connect directly with wholesale buyers.

We are so thrilled to be bringing back to a two-day summer event at Magnuson Park Hangar 30! This will allow for food trucks, great shopping both indoors and out, and a fun weekend for the whole family!

Urban Craft Uprising aims to build a local (and beyond) community of artists, crafters and designers by organizing and providing events where indie crafters and artists can connect with their fans. In addition, Urban Craft Uprising promotes other community building activities, including our crafting shows, showcases, classes, events, Camp ThunderCraft, sponsorships, online presence and other local activities.

Sprouts Program

At the Summer Show, the outdoor South Lot of the Hangar will be dedicated to our Sprouts! This is an area that will give vendors who are new and building their businesses an opportunity to vend at a lower cost, and for only one of the two days if they so choose. We expect the weather to be beautiful in July but our shows are rain or shine, and there is always a weather risk involved with doing any outdoor show, so you’ll need to be mindful of this. The Sprouts’ booth fee is significantly lower to reflect this, but we also think there will be some great advantages to this area as well! For example, the main entrance to the show is directly through this South Lot, so you’ll be the first booths most fans will see when they arrive. And, we hope it’s just a beautiful summer weekend! We will also have a small Sprouts section in the North Lot along with the food trucks and Sip & Savor Lounge, where emerging packaged and prepared food booths will have an opportunity to vend at this same reduced cost. We hope this opportunity introduces new, emerging businesses to the craft show game and instills a love for the community and for our fans. We can’t wait to watch you grow.

You ladies are just the best. I really want you to know just how fortunate I feel to be part of this show and this community. You’ve created something really special – the vendors feel it, and the customers do too. So many times this year I had customers tell me how well curated it all felt. I think that’s something that’s so much harder to achieve than most people think. So just big high fives and hugs to you. You ROCK!
