100 American Craftsmen
Since its inception in 1970, the 100 American Craftsmen event has focused exclusively on fine craft art, supporting both established artisans who have reached the highest level of artistic quality, and nurturing new artisans who combine innovative approaches with traditional crafting techniques.
It saddens us to report, due to the current mandates and for the safety of our community, we are cancelling the 2020 100 American Craftsmen event.
However, we know the show must go on...line! In an effort to maintain the mission of supporting fine craft artisans, we have teamed up with our 100 American Craftsmen artisans to bring their work to you virtually! Visit the Exhibitors page to browse their shops.
We are excited to welcome you back next year when we will celebrate our 50th Golden Anniversary with an even larger, more exciting event. Stay tuned for more information!
We wish you much support, success and most importantly health during these trying times.

ABOUT THE SHOW
Since its inception in 1970, 100 American Craftsmen has focused exclusively on fine craft art, supporting both established artisans who have reached the highest level of artistic quality, and nurturing new artisans who combine innovative approaches with traditional crafting techniques.
100 American Craftsmen is a juried craft show. Artisan images are reviewed by a panel of artisans, curators, and craft media specialists and scored. All artisans must jury every year unless exempt, and previous acceptance does not guarantee future acceptance.
The event takes place indoors at the Kenan Center Arena located on the 25-acre Kenan Center campus in the heart of historic Lockport, NY. For almost 50 years, the Kenan Center has served the community with arts, education and recreation programs. The Center is located a short drive from the Erie Canal, the Niagara Wine Trail, and 30 minutes from Niagara Falls.
