  • The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri is excited to announce its holiday favorite, the 52nd Annual Arts and Crafts Extravaganza, will be held November 19th and 20th  at the Osage Centre and Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau. 


    This highly anticipated craft show will feature more than 300 high quality crafters, including many of the finest artisans from across the Midwest.  The annual event draws an estimated 14,000 visitors at both locations, making it one of the largest craft fairs in the Southeast Missouri region. This year will also feature holiday events for families including live music, entertainment, and Santa himself!


    We are now accepting vendors with 100% handmade items, and each booth must pass a rigorous inspection process to participate in the Extravaganza. When booth sales close for the year, on September 1, judges select and name one booth "Best of Show", per each location, for the 2022 fair.  


    Attendees can luxuriate in the decadence of the holidays with purchases of homemade Christmas candies, fresh roasted nuts, savory holiday dips and sauces, honey, baked goods, homemade jelly and salsa, and delicious fudge—all available at this year’s fair. 


    The Craft Fair will also feature home enhancing décor like sculptures, framed original art and photography, handmade pottery, leather goods, gourmet dog treats and fashions, wearable art, wood items of every description, toys, knitted, quilted and baby apparel, fabulous wreaths and table decorations, and an array of jewelry. 


    This year's show will be held Saturday, Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Just one ticket is good for admission to both huge locations! Cost for Saturday and Sunday is $5.
