We are very excited to announce a NEW addition to the MADE fair series this summer...
The NEW MADE fair Marketplace at the Western Montana Fair will showcase over 65 artisans per day in the historic commercial building on the fairgrounds August 7-12, 2018. Local & regional artists and makers are encouraged to apply to be a part of this new endeavor and will be juried by a panel to make sure our curated collection of artisans represent Montana’s best of the best. In addition to featuring artists we will also be hosting three additional booths: a local non-profit, an artist in residence, and a make & take zone. Check out our How to be a MADE fair Artist // Summerpage for additional details.
The MADE fair is a modern handcrafted market featuring local and regional artists. The MADE fair’s mission is to increase awareness of handmade goods as an alternative to mass-produced items and support local and regional small craft business by providing a place to sell their goods. We provide opportunities to artists of all levels—the hobbyist to the seasoned professional. Our events have grown in size of the years and are very well attended and seen as a great place to shop and connect with local artists.
The Missoula Summer MADE fair is a modern handcrafted open-air market featuring local and regional artists at Caras Park in downtown Missoula, MT. Our juried summer show features over 120 skilled artisans as well as a handful of non-profits. In addition to shopping, customers can experience the flavor of local food & beverages and enjoy the views of the river and mountains that surround.
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) and Courtney Blazon , a with assistance from MADE fair ambassadors and local artists.
