For the 34th year in a row, the American Craft Council (ACC) will hold its annual San Francisco show this weekend at the Fort Mason Center!
If you have never been to an ACC show, boy have you been missing out! This year’s San Francisco show will feature 250 national artists who have traveled to the Bay area to show and sell their latest and greatest– furniture, clothing, jewelry, decor (a list of exhibitors is available on the show page organized by medium).
Over the years, I have been to many of the ACC shows in Baltimore and seen an AMAZING range of work and art. By attending these shows, I have met artists whose work has enriched my life, enlivened my home and even inspired my own work.
- The American Craft Council Show in San Francisco
- at the Fort Mason Center (vague directions available here— but if you’ve never been there, it’s a pretty walk along the water past Fisherman’s Wharf– the view from the hill above is gorgeous!)
- Friday, August 14; 10am – 8pm
Saturday, August 15; 10am – 6 pm
Sunday, August 16; 10 am – 5 pm
- Tickets are $12/person or $18 for a two-day pass. And since they’ve extended the Friday evening hours to 8pm, tickets for Friday night only are $5 after 5pm; a SCREAMING deal, if you ask me. OR if you know you’re going and want to save a few bucks, why not buy your tickets ahead of time at a slight discount here.
Not a Bay area resident? Fear not, faithful reader. There are other ACC shows around the nation throughout the year.
