Urban Craft Uprising is known as Seattle’s Largest Indie Craft Show and is here, this weekend! You will find a wide variety of hand-crafted goods including clothing, jewelry, accessories, toys, housewares, paper goods, furniture, art and even food! This biannual show will feature over 150 vendors specializing in craft, art and design.
Urban Craft Uprising was founded in 2005 to display the work of entrepreneur crafters, artists and designers. The mission of the show is to allow crafters to showcase their original and unique hand-crafted work, along with supporting the DIY crafting community. Since the first show, UCU has grown rapidly. Nearly 15,000 fans attend this favorite craft show over the course of the weekend! While Urban Craft Uprising holds two shows per year, they also offer many opportunities for the local artists and crafters. You will now find a dedicated section for these individuals at the Seattle Gift Show, an Urban Craft market at Magnolia Summerfest, a Fall Market in South Lake Union and a handful of other markers right here in the Seattle area. In addition, Camp Thundercraft began in 2017. This weekend retreat focuses on educational sessions, discussions, self-reflection, networking and connection.
The show hours are 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday, this weekend and will be held at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. If you hope to get your morning started early, you can line up with hundreds of other attendees to receive a “swag bag” filled with fun items from the vendors and sponsors. In between browsing the aisles, you may also want to keep an eye out for hourly crafty book signings. There is no cost to attend the show, and it is a fun event for the whole family.

If unable to make the summer show, you can keep your eye out for the 2018 Winter Show!
