About Us


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, with two fairs: The Summer Swing and The Holiday Swing.  In 2015, we added the First Annual Spring Swing and a Fall Swing Pop-Up, too! A fair for every season.

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.
