Welcome to the Galveston Craft Show, where creativity and community converge to bring you the best of the handmade world. Since its inception in 2019, our craft show has grown from a modest gathering to a thriving and diverse showcase of artistry, craftsmanship, and camaraderie.
Our Roots in the Corvette Chevy Expo
The Galveston Craft Show is proud to be part of the long-standing tradition of the Corvette Chevy Expo. This iconic event has been revving up enthusiasts since its inception in 1976. For over four decades, the Corvette Chevy Expo has brought together car aficionados and collectors, creating a haven for all things Chevrolet and Corvette.
The Galveston Craft Show – A Creative Offspring
Born from the vision of enhancing the Corvette Chevy Expo experience, the Galveston Craft Show made its debut in 2019. This craft show was designed to celebrate the arts and crafts, providing a vibrant complement to the thrilling automotive extravaganza.
In 2019, the Galveston Craft Show started with a handful of passionate craft vendors who set up shop in the food court on level one of the Galveston Island Convention Center. What began as a small event filled with local artisans and their unique creations quickly captured the hearts of both visitors and participants.
The following year, we recognized the growing demand for handcrafted goods and expanded into the hall on the first level, providing even more space for talented artisans to display their work. As our craft community continued to flourish, we extended our reach into the small conference rooms, accommodating an ever-expanding array of artistic talents.
By the third year, our commitment to fostering creativity and community brought about further growth. We proudly added the Ballroom on the second floor to our craft show spaces, offering an even broader canvas for artists and artisans to connect with a larger audience.
The following year marked yet another exciting milestone as we opened the doors to the lobby on the second floor. This expansion allowed us to include even more craftspeople and their distinctive creations. Today, we’ve reached our full capacity with 135 vendor spaces, showcasing the incredible diversity and craftsmanship that defines the Galveston Craft Show.
At the heart of the Galveston Craft Show is a commitment to celebrating the spirit of creativity. We provide a platform for talented artisans and crafters to share their passion with a wider audience, all while fostering a sense of community that brings people together. Whether you’re a visitor seeking unique, handmade treasures or an artist looking to share your work with an engaged and appreciative audience, the Galveston Craft Show is the place where your craft can truly shine.
We invite you to be a part of our vibrant and growing community. Whether you’re an artist, a crafter, or someone who simply appreciates the beauty of handcrafted goods, the Galveston Craft Show is your destination. Come, experience the magic of creativity, and become a part of our story.
