Have you ever dreamed of shopping our Holiday Art + Craft Market without all the crazy crowds of people?? Or maybe you want first pick of all the handmade goodness? 

WE KNOW! Shoppers raved about last year's Friday Night Pre-Show Shopping Party so we're doing it again! Get your tickets now and be one of the lucky ones who can shop our show before we open to the public over the weekend! We're only selling 800 tickets so get one while you can! (To give you an idea of crowds, there are usually close to 2,000 people waiting in line to get into our show when it opens on Saturday morning and our attendance for the entire weekend is 20,000...so 800 will feel like a gentle breeze!)

If the early shopping perk isn't enough, your ticket also gets you one free drink of your choice at the cash bar!

 

Crafty Wonderland First Pick Pre-Show Party
Friday, December 13th
5:00pm - 9:00pm
at the Oregon Convention Center
777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd - HALL D
Tickets are only $20 and include:
  • Entry into the show from 5:00-9:00pm on Friday, December 13th and an opportunity to shop early from over 250 handmade vendors without the crowds
  • One free drink of your choice at the cash bar

A few things to note:
-The legendary Crafty Wonderland “goodie bags” will NOT be given out at this pre-show event. They will be given out to the first 150 shoppers in line at the show on Saturday and Sunday. As usual, the event will be free and open to the public all day Saturday and Sunday, December 14 + 15 from 11am-6pm!

-The free DIY craft activities will NOT be happening during the pre-show party, but will be up and running all day Saturday and Sunday as usual.

- Kids 5 years old and under are free. Kids 6 years old and up will be required to have a ticket to attend. The event is all ages but is meant to be a relaxing shopping experience where you can have a grown up drink and shop at your leisure so we encourage you to come kid-free if possible!

- Tickets West charges a $3 fee per ticket. We are sorry, but this is the only way to buy tickets as per Convention Center rules. You can not buy them directly from us.

 
Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance through TicketsWest. No tickets will be sold at the door the night of the event. Get yours now before they sell out! You don't want to miss this - it's going to be HUGE!
