Quad Cities Craft Shows

Craft Fairs in the QC: November and December 2018

‘Tis the season for great craft fairs in the Quad Cities. From vendor fairs to small church sales to big ones at the Expo Center and RiverCenter…I love a good craft fair. I love local, hand-made, creative, fun, unique gifts. I love the giveaways, the camaraderie, and okay…I love to shop!

  1. Hi Meghan. Can you provide me with contact information for the shows listed on this site? My husband is a local children’s book author, and has published 3 adorable children’s books, The Mouse Who Stirred at Christmas, Anthony’s Happy Halloween, and Anthony’s Summer Vacation. We live in Bellevue, Iowa and would love to attend some shows in the QC area. Thank you!

    1. Tina, How fun!! If you go to the linked websites (in the titles) you can easily find contact info for most of these shows. Good luck!
