Join us in Washington, IA on May 3rd, 2025 for our Spring Craft Fair, which is held in our beautiful downtown square from 9a.m. – 3p.m. Our community has been hosting a Fall Craft Fair for decades and in 2021 we were excited to launch our Spring Craft Fair, typically held the first Saturday in May. We had over 100 vendors join our Spring Craft Fair in 2024!

With such a large variety of craft fair vendors showcasing their unique creations, attendees are treated to an array of handmade goods, ranging from jewelry and artwork to knitted items and delicious treats. The lively atmosphere also showcases multiple food trucks offering a variety of tasty snacks and meals.

Whether you are a seasoned craft fair enthusiast or a first-time visitor, these events provide the perfect opportunity to support local artisans, discover one-of-a-kind treasures, and immerse yourself in a community celebration of creativity and craftsmanship.

Even better, it’s FREE to attend!
