History of RRCS: The Rock N Roll Craft Show was started in 2005 by a group of crafty friends who simply wanted to provide a venue for themselves and others to showcase and sell original work. Rather than compete with the quilt-filled more traditional craft shows, the organizers of the Rock N Roll Craft Show aim to capture the energy of this generation’s DIY-ers.
Since the humble beginning, a five-hour event featuring a mere 50 vendors and drawing a crowd of 500, RRCS has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 10 events to become a weekend-long event featuring more than 120 crafters, dozens of live bands, food, drinks, crowds of more than 4000, and through local and national press, earning recognition as St. Louis’s best alternative craft event!
Rock N Roll Craft Show continues to be a staple in the St. Louis music, art, and craft scene and proves to be the most fun you will have on Thanksgiving weekend. Avoid the malls and get ready for this holiday season by supporting the local arts and rocking out while you’re checking off your shopping list!
