45th Annual Arts and Crafts Extravaganza

PRESS RELEASE

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO—The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri is excited to announce its holiday favorite, the 45th Annual Arts and Crafts Extravaganza, to be held Nov. 21-22 at the Osage Centre and Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau. 

This highly anticipated craft show will feature more than 300 high quality crafters, including many of the finest artisans from across the Midwest.  Last year an estimated 14,000 visitors came through the doors at both locations, making it one of the largest craft fairs in the Southeast Missouri region.

Each booth must sell ONLY handmade items and, as a requirement, must pass a rigorous inspection process to participate in the Extravaganza. After the inspection, judges will select and name one booth "Best of Show", per each location, for the 2015 fair.  

Attendees can make ready for the holidays with purchases of homemade Christmas candies, fresh roasted nuts, savory holiday dips and sauces, honey, baked goods, homemade jelly and salsa, and delicious fudge—all available at this year’s Fair.

The craft fair will also feature home enhancing décor like sculptures, lamps, framed original art and photography, handmade pottery, leather goods, gourmet dog treats and fashions, wearable art, wood items of every description, toys, knitted, quilted and baby apparel, fabulous wreaths and table decorations, and an array of jewelry. 

This year's show will be held Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Just one ticket is good for admission to both huge locations! Cost for Saturday and Sunday is $5.

Volunteers are also needed for this event: Volunteers who assist with wrist-banding guests at the Osage Centre on Saturday from 9 am - 2 pm during the 45th Extravaganza will get into the Fair for FREE afterwards!
