Last year, Crafty Mart hit the road for Canton and we had a blast! We're so pleased to be invited to come back and host another pop-up market at the Canton Museum of Art on Friday, July 1st, from 4-8 pm. Here are 5 reasons you don't want to miss out on this special event:
1. Discover Canton and win prizes.
To celebrate the “shop local” spirit of Crafty Mart, the Canton Arts District has come together with a fun project to enhance the public’s experience downtown for the week of June 24 – July 1.
Visit any of the 17 participating venues between June 24-July 1st and receive a Canton Arts District Passport and your first card punch. During that week, collect four card punches and bring your passport to Crafty Mart on Friday between 4-8 pm and you will receive raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes from participating Crafty Mart vendors, and other wonderful prizes!
Who doesn't love winning prizes!? You only need 4 punches out of the 17 participating venues to enter. Turn in your punched card on Friday July 1st at the Canton Museum of Art.
2. Meet our fabulous vendors!
For this special event, we went out of our way to include talented vendors from Stark county with a few favorites from around Northeast Ohio too. Click on the artisan/maker's name to see their website:
Crooked River Fae
3. Chalk the Walk
20 Artists will be covering the Arts District in original chalk drawings. Pick up a piece of chalk in our community drawing areas and make your own creation throughout the Canton Arts District.
4. Grab a drink and mingle!
Crafty Mart prides itself as more than just a place to do your shopping-- it's a community event! There will be a cash bar available, so grab a drink, settle in, and get lost in a good conversation!
5. Check out First Friday.
If you've never made it out for a First Friday, this is the perfect opportunity! First Friday is a year-round monthly party in the downtown Canton Arts District featuring themed music, performance and visual arts events and always a few surprises. It's a self-guided self-paced tour of local art galleries, studios, stores and restaurants, and the Canton Museum of Art is where the party starts! More info on participating locations HERE.
Have we convinced you to come out yet? We'll be all set up at the Canton Museum of Art from 4-8 pm on Friday, July 1st. Click HERE to RSVP to our Facebook event and invite your friends. See you there!
Many thanks to Arts in Stark for their generous support in helping to make this event!
