Art and Craft Fairs List

Over the last few months, we have been working on a list of Art and Craft Fairs in the Kansas City area and surrounding areas. The list is ever-growing, but we've found several promising shows that we'd like to try this year. Of course, we can't go to all as some are over the same weekend, but we have a beginning.

Suggestions and information on the various shows are always welcome. If you know of one, please send it in. We'd love to add it to our list.
