Detroit Urban Craft Fair Opening Night
December 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Art Road will be the beneficiary of the Detroit Urban Craft Fair Opening Night.
The Detroit Urban Craft Fair (DUCF) is a three-day alternative craft fair held annually in the city of Detroit. Now in its fourteenth year, the 2019 fair features over 100 handmade crafters and indie artists. DUCF is a community market that encourages the interaction of maker and buyer. It is unique opportunity for shoppers to find one-of-a-kind items and meet the people who made them. Participating crafters have the chance to connect with a large, supportive audience. The Detroit Urban Craft Fair’s mission is to elevate handmade goods as an alternative to mass-produced items, support and elevate small craft business by providing a place for them to sell during the busy holiday shopping season, and raise awareness of handmade craft.
Cost to attend Friday night is $10. Not to give away too much of the mystique of DUCF opening night, it’s the full show but definitely feels different, and with some intention. We introduced an opening night to add a charitable component to the fair and give people a first shot at shopping without the Saturday morning craze. There’s a lot of shoppers and lines to wait in on Saturday & Sunday, but Friday night 6-9pm feels like a mixer with that early-evening party glow. Each year we make arrangements to have Friday-only activities and treats to eat, and they change each year. You’ll be wonderfully surprised with what we have in store for you that night! You’ll also love being able to speak to our artists a bit longer and have an easier time shopping. Despite the cost, we have many people tell us it’s a great deal and their new annual tradition to shop on Friday night. Come join us and experience it for yourself!
