This is Iowa’s largest show, with over 300 talented exhibitors from seven states presenting and selling the Midwest’s finest handcrafts.


The show is a production of Callahan Promotions, Inc. and offers patrons the chance to enjoy original, affordable arts and crafts. Products being sold include oak furniture, pottery, jewelry, clothing, floral wreaths, stained glass, several different types of food items, lawn and garden art, and much, much more, with over 100,000 square feet of display space.
