One of the region’s largest Art and Craft Shows will celebrate its return at the Charleston Convention Center on November 18-20, 2022. The sponsoring Kanawha City Lions Club has hosted this regional event for 52 consecutive years until COVID interrupted the schedule in 2020 and 2021. 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 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 customers it’s an annual ritual to spend the day here seeing their favorite exhibitors and meeting new ones. You can be entertained as well watching and learning from crafts persons doing their work. The Show will feature artisans from six states. A Country Kitchen will be offering delicious fall favorites and vendors will be sampling West Virginia produced food products like dips, salsas, baked goods, honey, jellies, sauces fudges.
Since the Show’s inception the Lions Club has used the proceeds of the event to donate more than $1.6 million dollars to state and local charities, as well as providing $130,000 for eyeglasses and exams for area residents.
Craftsmen provide door prizes that are drawn continually. The first 250 attendees each day are given a “Lions Buck” discount coupon on your first purchase. A coloring contest for children provides cash prizes to winners in various age groups.
