Presented by Shop Maine Craft, the Portland Fine Craft Show returns for its seventh annual event, a festive, one-day, outdoor juried fine craft show in downtown Portland from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 27.

The show is located in the heart of Portland’s arts district in the large parking area at 120 Free St.

The show features over 100 artists from all over Maine and the greater Northeast area exhibiting in basketry, ceramics, decorative and wearable fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, printmaking, stone and wood, as well as several outreach booths from Maine arts organizations and sponsors. The show remains one of the only Maine craft shows open to New England artists beyond Maine and is renowned for its exceptional quality and high attendance.

The one-day show has become a staple summer event for both local craft enthusiasts and visitors to Maine who happily anticipate seeing their favorite and familiar exhibitors while equally looking forward to seeing new juried artists each year. Guests of the show can shop handcrafted items to live with, wear, and cherish.

Established and formerly produced by the Maine Crafts Association, the Portland Fine Craft Show will now be produced by its new partner organization, Shop Maine Craft.

Admission is free, and the outdoors event will be held rain or shine.
