The Holiday Show of Hands craft fair is a very special annual event put on by the parents and staff of St. John the Evangelist School in Carmichael. All proceeds from this fundraising event go directly to the school to support needs such as classroom materials, updated curriculum, renovations, and more. This event has grown as a holiday tradition for friends and family to enjoy together and we are thrilled to welcome you back!

How To Become A Vendor

The St. John’s Holiday Show of Hands Craft Fair Committee would like to invite interested crafters to apply to be a vendor at our 2022 craft fair! Interested crafters may bring a few samples of their work to be viewed by members of our Craft Fair committee on the first Wednesday in March from 9am to 4pm in our hall.

1. Where and when do I apply? Stop by anytime between 9am - 4pm on Wednesday, 3/2/22 at St. John's Parish Hall located at 5701 Locust Avenue in Carmichael. Appointments are not scheduled.

2. What should I bring? Bring a sample of your handmade item to be viewed by members of the craft fair committee, in addition to a self-addressed stamped envelope and a picture of your craft that we may keep. A picture of your booth setup is also helpful. You do not need to leave your samples.

3. How long does this take? Not very long. We generally have 3 tables going. One crafter showing items to the committee, one packing their samples, and one unpacking their crafts.

4. How many spaces are available? We have over 150 crafters, and each year 75% of our vendors are invited to return. With approximately 25 spaces available yearly, we are always seeking exciting new crafts for our show.
