Craft Lake City strives to further define the term “Craft,” broadening the definition to encompass all things handmade.
In addition to the DIY Festival, Craft Lake City facilitates local arts and crafts programming throughout the year, providing artisans of all mediums with the chance to promote themselves and their work, as well as educating the community on the local DIY culture through workshops, demonstrations, community partnerships, gallery shows and fundraisers. We promote regional spending and encourage the public to shop locally and support independent artisans whose crafts are handmade. Craft Lake City exists not only to support makers but also to inspire future makers and empower individuals to realize their creative potential.
The Craft Lake City DIY Festival has grown from a one-day festival in 2009, to a two-day festival in 2013, to a three-day festival in 2016. In 2012, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) building was added to feature local DIY tinkerers and cutting edge science and engineering organizations that blend art and technology. The Festival continues to grow, featuring more artisans and unique new exhibits each year.
