Full of creatives who are experts at their craft, this indie craft fair is the Midwest’s celebration of the handmade movement. Founded in 2011, The Strawberry Swing has become a Kansas City tradition. We have a fair for every season: Fall, Holiday, Spring and Summer Swings, with some pop-ups in between.
Our goal is to create an indie craft event that becomes nationally known as a “place to be” for all lovers of handmade and recycled/upcycled items. Buzzfeed recently recognized us as just that: one of the Top 35 Indie Craft Fairs in the World! We support small businesses and the handmade craft movement. Make sure not to miss one of the Best Holiday Craft Fairs in the USA:
Our past events have included food trucks, a photo booth, live music and 75+ vendors! The Swing donates a percentage of vendor fees to different non-profits at each event, as well.
At The 7th Annual Summer Swing, we raised almost $3,000.00 for The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, our venue and non-profit partner! We hope this becomes an annual tradition because it was an absolutely gorgeous event:
