Milwaukee area arts and crafts shows offer creative gift options while at the same time supporting small business crafters and, in some cases, benefitting charities. Shows boast a variety of items, including jewelry, holiday decor, glass art and more.

Here are more than 20 holiday arts and crafts fairs that are coming up around the Milwaukee area. Be sure to check out each fair’s website for detailed schedules.
