Charleston, WV… One of the region’s largest Art and Craft Shows will celebrate its return to the Charleston Convention Center on November 17-19, 2023. The 54th Capital City Art and Craft Show is sponsored by the Kanawha City Lions Club.
Each year the Convention Center is filled to the brim with high quality original items at affordable prices. Nearly 160 booths featuring the creative talents of artisans from six states will be on display featuring traditional to contemporary treasures including jewelry, pottery, woodwork, holiday decorations, fine art, photography, metal sculpture, quilting, textiles and more.
For many people it is an annual ritual to spend the day seeing their favorite exhibitors and meeting new ones. You can be entertained as well watching and learning from craftsmen doing their work. Vendors will be sampling West Virginia produced food products like dips, salsas, baked goods, honey, jellies, sauces and candies.
Since the Show’s inception the Lions Club has used the proceeds of the event donating more than $1.6 million dollars to state and local charities.
Attendees can win craftsmen-provided door prizes which are drawn continually. The first 250 attendees each day are given “Lions Buck” coupons for discounts. Children can participate in a coloring contest and send their letters to Santa. The Appalachian Children’s Choir will entertain on Saturday at 2PM.
Persons attending the Show are encouraged to bring nonperishable food products for local food banks and/or used tennis shoes/sneakers which are recycled. Deposit these donations at the door and receive a $1 discount on an adult admission.
Show times are 2PM-7PM on Friday, November 17, 10AM -6PM on Saturday, November 18 and noon-5PM on Sunday, November 19. Admission is $6 for adults and $2 for children under 12.
