Welcome to the new Handmade Detroit site!
It’s been a few years since we did a design update (5, actually, whoa.), and we are really excited for this one! We have kept all the important features you’ve come to see on our site, but now with an updated, image-dominant design. We love it!
Stay tuned to this and the DUCF site for all our DUCF announcements (applications are going live on August 1st)! You can sign up for our email list to be the first to know what’s going on here.
Whether you’ve been with us since our beginnings in 2006, or just joining us, we are glad to have you!
We’ve been getting a lot of inquiry about this year’s Detroit Urban Craft Fair! The 9th Annual DUCF will be held Saturday, December 6th and Sunday, December 7th at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. We will again feature over 100 makers, and applications will go live August 1st!
Stay tuned to this site, or sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page for updates when apps go live.
We are excited to see Detroit Urban Craft Fair in Metrotimes’ 100 Things All Detroiters Should Do Before They Die list!
We were happy to see some local crafters featured on Real Detroit this week! To see who made their “top 5 indie vendors”, check out “Tinker, Tailor, Crafter…Five”!
The 8th annual Detroit Urban Craft Fair is over, but we are still so excited about what many shoppers and crafters said was their favorite DUCF yet! This year we had over 4,700 shoppers, our highest attendance yet, and the artistry, creativity and imaginations of our 100+ vendors was so inspiring. Thank you to both our vendors for all of your hard work, and to everyone who came to shop and support them!
We also would like to thank The Masonic Temple and their staff for all of their help and for giving DUCF such a beautiful space to be set in. Some more thanks go out to El Guapo, who kept both sellers and shoppers’ tummies full of taco awesomeness, DJ Dave Lawson who provided a wonderful soundtrack all weekend, and Anne of Indie Lovely who captured the show and each of our vendors so well - check out more pictures in her Flickr set here.
Finally, big thanks to all of our sponsors this year! We couldn’t have done it without you. Our sponsors this year were:
Essential Screen Printing
Klever Design and Printing
The Rust Belt Market
Sarah Barthlow Photography
Craft Test Dummies
The Henry Ford
