We're baaaaaaack!!!

In little more than 2 weeks, on Saturday, June 19, the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange will once again be holding our annual summer event at the Harrison Center in conjunction with their Independent Music and Art Festival (IMAF).

This year's event will look a little different - fewer booths, all outdoors, more generous spacing between booths and activities - but will still be just as much fun as ever.

As always, the event is FREE for patrons to attend and is familly-friendly. We'll be open from 12pm-8pm, with live music, food trucks, stand-up comedy, and lots and lots of great handmade goodies.

Put it on your calendar now; we'd love to see you all there!

We apologize for the delay in getting an official word out to everyone about this event. The Saturday, June 20 INDIEana Handicraft Exchange / IMAF has been cancelled. We were attempting to come up with a later date in summer or early fall, but ultimately couldn't come up with a feasible alternative. All vendors who applied for the summer show will have their applications carried over for the winter event, and we'll also be accepting new applications in August for our December show. Thanks for your patience while we sorted it all out.

05/06/2020

Vendor applicants and patrons- We are waiting on the final word from our venue, but it’s looking very likely that our summer show will be cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. We will definitely be unable to hold it on the original date, June 20, as gatherings of more than 250 people will not allowed by then in the state of Indiana. There was a short discussion of postponing the date into the fall, so that’s what we’re waiting on a decision about now. We will let everyone know as soon as we get the final decision. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding in these strange and unsure times.

Based on what we know now, we are planning to hold a show this summer.  https://mailchi.mp/indieanahandicraftexchange/in...
