The annual American Craft Show returns to the St. Paul RiverCentre on April 20–22. The show features more than 230 juried artists from across the country. For those looking for the finest handmade jewelry, wearables and home decor, this is the premier art sale in the North. Here are some features of this year’s show that you won’t want to miss.

Avoid the crowds and support the American Craft Council

Serious shoppers attend the preview party on Thursday, April 19, to mix and mingle with the artists, enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and have first choice of one-of-a-kind jewelry, wearables and home decor the evening before the show opens. It’s an extremely civilized way to shop, and proceeds support the American Craft Council.

Get shopping tips from local fashion stylists

The Style Slam program showcases models decked out in handcrafted wearables, accessories and jewelry as styled by four local stylists, demonstrating how ACC creations perfectly fit into a fashion-conscious wardrobe. Stop by the Style Slam pop-up booth any time on Saturday, April 21, to get fashion and beauty tips.

Enjoy Balvenie Scotch tastings throughout the show

The Balvenie, maker of the finest handcrafted single-malt Scotch whisky and a longtime ACC partner, will offer tastings throughout the show in the new Balvenie Lounge. Stop by at your leisure to raise a dram.
