Craftstravganza is pretty big gathering of local arty and craftsy talents to show and sell the wonderful things they make. It's a great chance to interact with the creators and their crafts and to support local, handmade goods.
Have a look at their website: http://www.craftstravaganza.com/2013/
It is at:
MN State Fairgrounds - Progress Building
