What is the Craft Show in Galveston about?

The Galveston Craft Show is a juried event. All items are handmade. You will find one-of-a-kind items. Perfect gifts for someone who has everything! The craft show encompasses two levels of the convention center. On this first floor, you will find craft vendors in the food court and hall, and on the second floor, vendors will be in the Ballroom. The event is indoors, so come rain or shine! Handmade gifts abound at our many vendor booths. Bring your whole family for an enjoyable day of shopping for handmade treasures at affordable prices – all under one roof. Bring your camera and get some selfies with the show cars!

What type of vendors will be at the Galveston Craft Show?

Kick off your gift shopping with these small mom-and-pop artists and entrepreneurs at the Galveston Craft Show. These craft vendors travel from all over Texas and Louisiana, giving local people a chance to see their goods in person rather than ordering online or purchasing in-store; how awesome is that? They are excellent places to find unique gifts.

What to Expect at the Craft Show?

The Galveston Craft Show is a two day event featuring the handmade items by artists from Texas and Louisiana.

When you walk into a convention center, you will see a lobby full of show cars and “trailer queens.” The craft vendors are located on the first floor in the food court and on the second floor in the Ballroom. The event is full of artists and craft vendors. There are plenty of options for navigating around to find what you want. Use the escalator or elevator to move between floors. 

There are so many different items at the Galveston Craft Show that it would be impossible to list them all, but we’ll give you a glimpse: Unique jewelry and accessories, quilts, and art are featured. Other specialties include candles, wreaths of flowers, kids’ crafts, and handmade soaps, to name a few items. You will find Toxic-free products, skincare, haircare, perfumes, pet care, home decor, toys, pottery, signs, woodworking, resin products, tumblers, lamps, Polymer Clay pieces, embroidery, crochet and knitted Items,  bath bombs, and soaps, coasters, placemats, granite items, yard decor, leather items, the list goes on. Who knows what you will find, but one thing is for sure, it will be Handmade! Plan on spending some time with family and friends. We’re not exaggerating when we say that you won’t believe your eyes. You haven’t seen anything until you’ve been to one of these craft shows!

Where will it be held?

The Galveston Craft Show is held at the Galveston Island Convention Center, located at 5600 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, Texas, right in between Kroger and the Hilton.

It’s indoors, so you don’t have to worry about weather impacting your enjoyment of all those crafts and cars! One thing that I like about going to indoor craft shows, in particular, is that the event is held rain or shine. There is even free parking in the parking garage, located right under the convention center. 

Craft Show Hours

Hours are Saturday 9 AM – 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM 6 PM.

Did I mention that parking is free in the parking garage?
