Call For Applications – Armagh Craft Fair 2022

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council invite you to apply for participation in the 10th annual Armagh Craft Fair 2022. Armagh Craft Fair also includes demonstrations, workshops, Food and Non-Craft Stands.

You may apply to take a stand as part of the Craft Fair, provide a demonstration, workshop or all three.

To celebrate our 10th year the Armagh Craft Fair have an exciting programme of creative activities for visitors to enjoy to make this years craft fair extra special. We also know how difficult the past two years have been on the Creative and Cultural sector, particularly makers, with little or no opportunity to sell their products to customers face to face. To show our support we have reduced the stall holder fee this year by 20%!

Visitors to the craft fair can shop at a wide variety of high quality craft stalls, experience traditional and
contemporary craft demonstrations with some hands on craft making opportunities and take part in scheduled creative workshops. Children will enjoy crafty fun workshops and FREE drop in sessions throughout the day.

Live musical performances during the lunch time session will keep audiences entertained as they shop for beautiful craft products, relax with a coffee, refreshing drink or simply enjoy the atmosphere.

We look forward to celebrating 10 years of this wonderful fair with you and our visitors.
