Salt Lake City, UT – Craft Lake City is still accepting applications from exhibitors and performers wanting to participate in the 12th Annual Craft Lake City® DIY Festival®. In light of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Craft Lake City has extended the application deadline to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 18, 2020.

Utah-based artisans, craft foodies, vintage vendors, STEM exhibitors, DIY engineers, performers and entertainers, multicultural organizations and Kid Row artisans are encouraged to apply online through the Craft Lake City website. Accepted exhibitors will be announced on Thursday June 4, 2020.

Craft Lake City wishes to further affirm our commitment to our creative community.
