About the Event

Known as the state’s premier art and food experience, Indiana Artisan Marketplace is the don’t-miss weekend for everyone who enjoys exceptional art, fine craft and small-batch food and beverage. Browse about 125 gallery-like booths to meet fellow Hoosiers whose work has passed a stringent jurying process and is considered among the best in Indiana. Watch as many demonstrate their creative process in painting, weaving, leather-crafting, furniture building, and more. Sip and sample your way through the food and wine booths. Shop for yourself or others among some of the finest jewelers, photographers, glassblowers, and wood and fiber artists. In recognition of the organization’s 10th anniversary, All IN, an exhibit of the artists’ and foodists’ best work, will be open throughout the weekend in the same venue.

Volunteer Duties:

Volunteers are the most appreciated part of the Indiana Artisan Marketplace. They offer valuable help to Artisans, guests and staff. We strive to make duties fun.

Before the Marketplace opens, volunteers will help Artisans load in their work and booth supplies and set up the All IN Exhibit.

There will be greeters, ticket sellers, information specialists, runners, and staff guest conveniences, such as the complimentary coat check and package pickup.

When the last guest leaves, volunteers will help tear down to get the Artisans and staff on the road home.
