We are three independently-run, maker-focused markets in the Rust Belt (Cleveland, Akron and Pittsburgh). Our organizers believe in cooperation and mutual assistance, and we share an overlapping pool of artists who do all three of our markets’ events throughout the year. Accordingly, we chose to team up for a 2020 virtual holiday event so we could devote all three shows’ resources to making it a success. Our artists have had a difficult year in light of show cancellations and so much more; we want them to make up for lost time with a great holiday sales season. Thank you for helping us help them and keep more of your money in our cities with each purchase.
