ritz crafters

If you’re looking for something to do indoors this weekend and you’re into handmade art then I’ve got what you need!  Ritz Crafters, a new kind of craft show is coming to Rochester!

The show consists of many local artists that have brought new life and purpose to the term craft.

At the Ritz Crafters Fair you’ll find truly unique works of art like woodworkings, jewelry, footwear, accessories, and much more.

Food & Drinks at Ritz Crafters Fair

Drift Dough will be providing sugary sustenance.  Cafe Steam will be serving up piping hot caffeine! And you’ll find a full bar and food truck there as well!

Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s break down the Ritz Crafters Fair a little further.

What’s Ritz Crafters All About?

Founder, Danni Trester brought this brain child to life a few years ago in a different area but has moved the event to the bustling art-appreciating city of Rochester.  How cool!?

Appropriately stated in the event’s marketing, “not your grandma’s craft fair”… this line up of artists isn’t what you’re expecting.

They’ve gone through a rigorous journey through applications and board reviews to get a coveted spot at the Ritz Crafters Fair.

Founder, Danni, wants the fair to deliver true artists and their work.  And she hopes locals and visitors of Rochester will come out to support them.

Danni’s concept is centered around you, the people who truly appreciate the love, passion, and hard work that goes into creating art pieces.

Other Things To Know About The Ritz Crafters Fair
