Over 130 local artists, curators, craft food vendors and performers will gather under one roof this December at the Fifth Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market Presented By Google Fiber, and your favorite local maker might be on the roster! Craft Lake City announced the line up of exhibitors for their quinquennial winter festival today and it is jam packed with incredible Utah talent across a multitude of mediums.
“We’re so honored to invite this group of Utah-based artisans to come together and share their creations with the Ogden arts community,” says Mads Cole, Craft Lake City’s Artisan & Programs Coordinator. “It’s such a wonder to experience so many unique creators in the same space, the energy at the event is really something special.”
Established as a way for Craft Lake City to broaden access to their events for communities further north than the typical reach of their flagship event, the DIY Festival, the Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market aims to elevate the creative culture of Northern Utah by providing a space for makers to showcase their wares, network with other artisans and build relationships with customers. This year’s exhibitor line up features many returning Craft Lake City participants as well as a number of first time exhibitors spanning across a diverse range of artisanal mediums such as ceramics, vintage clothing and decor, fiber arts, jewelry and much more.
Hosted on the first weekend of December at the historic Union Station in Ogden, the Fifth Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market Presented By Google Fiber is a wonderful opportunity to complete your holiday shopping in one fell swoop while supporting local businesses and enjoying a cozy, festive atmosphere. Alongside a record-breaking number of artisans, craft foodies and commercial food exhibitors, this year’s program boasts some exciting new additions to the Holiday Market. Performers and musicians will join in the festivities, providing entertaining ambiance to the event, and a brand new interactive STEM arcade area will highlight local indie game developers with playable board and video games.
