About

Craft Lake City® is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that works to educate, promote and inspire local artisans while elevating the creative culture of the Utah arts community through science, technology and art.

 

Our Programs

DIY Festival

Our Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Presented by Harmons is Utah’s largest local-centric art, music, science and technology festival. The DIY Festival features hundreds of local artisans, vintage vendors, foodies, youth entrepreneurs, performers, & STEM exhibitors over three days the second weekend of August.

Holiday Market

Join us in Ogden in December for our Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market! This two day event features over 125 artisans, craft food creators and food vendors, and is the perfect spot to shop local this holiday season.

Volunteer

Want to get involved? Craft Lake City has tons of volunteer opportunities for every skill set!

Workshops

Typically we produce over 50 workshops a year at various partner locations throughout the Wasatch Front! Each workshop partners with a skilled local artisan or community member to bring a craft or STEM experience at an accessible price.

Celebration of the Hand & Local Voices

Our two outdoor exhibition series displayed in 14 large frames – also known as plakats (German for “poster”) – adjacent to the sidewalks along Broadway (300 South) between 200 West and 200 East. These free, seasonally rotating exhibitions are available to view 24/7.
