The Art Star Craft Bazaar will be coming back to Asbury Park for its 2nd year! They will be hosting the show at Bradley Park, which is situated directly across the street from the Asbury Park Boardwalk and Convention Hall, in the midst of Asbury's prime summer season. Join them at the beach for a celebration of all things handmade!
They will be partnering again with Asbury Park based non-profit, Move For Hunger. Visit their tent for a selection of freshly prepared, vegan/veg friendly food, coffee, and teas from Long Branch, NJ based restaurant, Hello Chef. A portion of all sales will go directly to Move For Hunger.
The Asbury Park Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail/art craft show that is organized by Philadelphia's premier indie craft shop and gallery, Art Star. Over 50 local and national artists have been chosen to set up shop and sell their wares at Bradley Park, nearby the beach and boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ.
Shoppers can expect high quality handmade goods that reflect Art Star's unique and quirky aesthetic. Erin Waxman and Megan Brewster of Art Star have hand selected a diverse collection of artists that create anything + everything, including housewares, paper goods, jewelry, prints, ceramics, clothing, accessories, photography, pet accessories, paintings/drawings, sculpture, and many other one-of-a-kind curiosities. All items have been handmade from a variety of mediums that include fabric, clay, glass, wood, paper and much more. The show will also include artists who will be selling select works (t-shirts, prints, cards, etc.) that have been reproduced in small batches, if not locally, within the US. The Art Star Craft Bazaar aims to offer something for everyone (women, men, kids, moms, babies, teens, etc) at a range of prices to accommodate all budgets.
The show will also include freshly prepared food by She's Got Balls, Dill With It, and Cha-Yen. There will be live acoustic music all day, each day brought to you by Asbury Underground. "Make + Takes" with Hot Sand Glassblowing Studio and Two River Theater (fun crafts for kids in support of their upcoming Theater For Young Audiences production of THE WAY BACK HOME). Relax in a Lounge Tent provided by Wanderland or one of their blankets while you enjoy a snack and live music in the park!
While visiting their bazaar, we encourage guests to explore all that Asbury Park has to offer. There is a variety of great independent shops and restaurants along the boardwalk, as well as a thriving shopping district along Cookman Avenue and connecting side streets. Make sure to check out the Visionary Tattoo Arts Festival which will be held in the Convention Hall, right across from the bazaar!
