Portland Fine Craft Show

 Portland, ME

The fourth annual Portland Fine Craft Show, produced by the Maine Crafts Association, will take place on Saturday, August 25, 2018 on Congress Street between State and High Streets in Portland, Maine. The Show features 100+ juried exhibitors from the greater New England area exhibiting fine craft in the following media categories: baskets, ceramics, fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, stone and wood. PFCS is a one-day, rain-or-shine outdoor event that closes the main thoroughfare of Portland, Maine to vehicles. Exhibitors are prepared for a relatively quick set up (3-4 hours) and take down (2 hours). 


Maine Crafts Association (Show Producer)

Established in 1983, the Maine Crafts Association (MCA) supports craft artists by providing educational, marketing and retail opportunities. MCA strives to develop lasting and impactful opportunities for both our members and greater fine craft community. MCA launched the Portland Fine Craft Show (PFCS) in 2015, and it remains one of the only Maine craft shows open to artists not living in Maine. PFCS is a well organized show with a reputation for high quality and high attendance.
