This weekend's craft fairs offer a medley of crafts to grab your interest from an entertainment/fun run/craft fair bonanza in Georgia and eco-friendly crafts in Missouri to quilts and more in California. 

While we can't write about every craft fair and marketplace happening across the country (or the world), we do like to highlight a handful of notable ones each week. If you'd like more people to know about your craft show or event, list it on our Craft Map and we'll gladly consider it for coverage. You can also email us at
