November 29 – December 2, 2018
Information on the 2018 show:
Crafts at the Cathedral, a high quality, jury-limited craft show, offers artisans an opportunity to market their work in an exceptional
venue in New York City during the winter holiday season. The show raises funds for the work of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and
is one of the few true craft shows in the metro area where everything is handmade by the exhibitor.
The show takes place in the nave of Saint John the Divine – one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world. What a dramatic venue
in which to display and market fine crafts!
Our exhibitors tell us this show is both easy and fun to do. Dozens of helpful volunteers from the Cathedral's
congregation will be on-site throughout the show.
We will also provide help with load-in and load out.
A café with home-made food is open during show hours.
Coffee and tea are free.
The Cathedral is a prime tourist destination on Manhattan's bustling Upper West Side just south of Columbia University.
Thousands of tourists come through the doors weekly.
The show has a
dedicated following in New York City, Westchester and New Jersey. An aggressive marketing campaign includes distribution of thousands of
postcards, press releases, targeted radio spots, electronic advertising and social media.
