Missoula Summer MADE fair
2018 // June 24 // Caras Park
The MADE fair is an artist
& handcrafted market featuring local and regional artists. Our juried summer show features over 120 skilled artisans as well as a handful of non-profits. Our curated collection of
artisans represents Montana’s best of the best Montana.
The MADE fairs are presented by HandMADE Montana— a professional organization for art & handcrafted goods. We organize events (MADE fairs & workshops), provide resources to artists, and encourage growth and support in our community efforts. The event is organized by Carol Lynn Lapotka (REcreate designs), Courtney Blazon, and with assistance from MADE fair ambassadors and local artists.
Community support for all of our events is
what helps to make them great. Non-profits play a big roll in creating
opportunities, educating, and fighting the good fight all across Montana. They
are often the building blocks for what makes our cities great. For the last
five years, we have been offering booths to local non-profits at a reduce rate
to provide them the opportunity to meet directly with the public they serve.
We are excited to continue offering space
available for non-profits at our Missoula events. We strongly encourage some sort of hands-on activity to engage
both children and adults that visit your booth. We will be jurying all non-profits that apply to make sure
they are a good fit for our event.
