LOCAL ART & GIFT FAIRS

Connecting Duluth area artisans & crafters to customers via fun, high quality, indoor fairs in Duluth throughout the year.

Please contact the organizer at WendyUpNorth@yahoo.com or 218-525-5098 for vendor application forms.

Thank you to artists and shoppers for all the fall fairs.  Neighbor-Made at Concordia Lutheran worked out well - it was a first-time for that location.  The sunshine warmed the place up. 

Next fair will be in March.  Treasures of the Earth Green Goods, Craft, and Art 

If you are in the Duluth area and make things out of recycled materials or natural materials or create nature art this may be a fair for you.
Fair will open for registration in early January. 
 

   

Thank you to the wonderful people who have been part of the fairs.  We are making some pretty awesome things in the Northland!  I'm proud to be part of building the local economy, having people take part in their first-ever fairs, bringing in local organizations as part of awareness and education of issues, fundraising, and volunteer opportunities in our area, and creating the start of community connections that have resulted from these fairs.  I've put on over 60 fairs over the last 13 years. 


The fairs are open to area artisans (no resale/dealers) living within about 50 miles of Duluth. Note: some fairs have special themes.  If you are part of a local organization and are interested in a space at one of the fairs, let me know.  I love combining education and community outreach as part of the fairs.
