2021 Craft Show November 6th

Craft and Holiday Show tickets available here!

After many years at Harrington Fairgrounds, they have decided to no longer allow us use of their facility to host our Craft Show.
We will still be having a Craft Show on November 6th this year but will be holding it at Delaware Technical and Community College in Dover.
All vendor spaces for the 2021 show have been filled and we are working through our Wait List to fill any vacancies.
Applications for the 2022 Show will be released Spring of 2022!

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to a great event this fall!


Unbelievably, a small committee of spouses from DAFB organizes this huge event, but it’s the dedicated volunteers that ensure its success.  We are grateful to the many community organizations who support our Craft Show, without whose help, the show couldn’t go on!

The Craft Show was founded in 1984 by Kay Kross, wife of retired AMC Commander, Gen. Walter Kross.  That first year, the show was held in the Youth Center of Dover Air Force Base (DAFB) and included only 20 vendors.  After a number of changes in venue, the Craft & Holiday Show was moved to its present location at the Delaware State Fairgrounds.  With 100+ vendors from eight states, our Craft Show has become the largest single-day craft show on the east coast!


The Craft & Holiday Show is held every year on the first Saturday in November. We expect more than 6,000 visitors to come through our gates!  All profits from the annual Craft Show are donated to base, local and national charities.  Last year alone, we gave out over $25,000 in charitable donations and scholarships!
