Event Summary
This annual pre-holiday craft festival is the talk of St. Pete Beach each year. With a great location and ongoing support by the community, this craft festival is always a hit. 
 

General Information
American Craft Endeavors produces multiple shows therefore we have an ongoing jury process that meets twice monthly and juries by category. SHOW DIRECTOR’S SUGGESTION: We recommend that you apply EARLY as the show and/or most categories will fill quickly. Upon receiving an invitation to participate in the show, you will need to submit a deposit/booth fee immediately to secure your space in the show. Simply ACCEPTING on Zapp will not secure your space in the show. Please note that your invitation email may go to your SPAM folder, so it is in your best interest to check your status on Zapp or check your SPAM folder. Due to the deadline being so close to the show date, the show will most likely be closed prior to the deadline. PLEASE NOTE that we keep a WAIT LIST on a category basis.
