The Craneway Craft Fair—a.k.a the 50th Annual KPFA Holiday Benefit—is returning to Richmond Nov. 27 & 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and organizers are on the lookout for exhibitors.

Richmond artists, craftspeople, nonprofits, makers and fair traders are encouraged to apply for the Craft Fair according to the City Manager’s Office, Economic Development, Environmental and Health Initiatives Division.

The annual event features “high quality, handmade goods from your favorite California artists and craftspeople at the beautiful Craneway Pavilion on Richmond’s historic waterfront,” per KPFA organizers. It includes 200 juried exhibitors, including both master artisans and emerging newcomers.

Those interested in applying to become exhibitors are not only encouraged by organizers to apply early, but also to read the Exhibitor FAQ beforehand. To apply, click here.
