58th Annual CRAFT + DESIGN Show: Our 58th Annual CRAFT + DESIGN show is scheduled for October 14-16, 2022!


Craft + Design is a museum-quality show, produced by the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, that has garnered a reputation for showcasing the finest in contemporary craft. This event welcomes thousands of guests to Richmond’s historic Main Street Station for a weekend of craft art and education. Volunteers help make this event happen.
