CRAFT SHOW IN CASTLE ROCK
The largest craft event in Douglas County, the one to usher in the holiday season, is also our biggest event of the year. Our 24th annual Craft Show - with 150+ vendors and so much more - is on Saturday, November 5th from 9-4 at the Douglas County Events Center. We'll have shuttle buses running between the parking lots and the front door, so look for them and you won't have to walk as much. The event is free to the public - last year more than 4,000 people came - see you there.
We are SOLD OUT of vendor booths for the Craft Show, as of 5-18-16. If interested in getting on the waitlist for possible cancelations, and to be notified when open registration begins for the 2017 show, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone, email and description of products.
COMMUNITY CORNER is now sold out. This is a room everyone goes through for area non-profits and businesses to gain some visibility. If your nonprofit or business would be interested for next year, please email email@example.com with your name, organization, phone and email.
