About Us

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.  Enjoy inspired handmade & vintage vendors, innovative food trucks, local live music, kids’ crafts and a really great time at one of the Top 35 Indie Craft Fairs in the World!

This highly curated indie craft fair is the Midwest’s celebration of the handmade movement. Our juried makers specialize in ceramics, clothing, printing, painting, photography, woodworking, leather working, metalsmithing, fiber arts, and more. We strive to showcase the highest quality handmade goods in an inclusive and accessible environment.   #shoplocal #shopsmall #shophandmade #makersgonnamake #maker movement
