Over the course of 10 years, UCU has garnered so much attention that over 16,000 fans swarm to the show over the course of the weekend.
Our vendors love our show!
"We heart Urban Craft Uprising, it's one of our favorite/most profitable shows. The organizers do an amazing job communicating, providing volunteers to watch the booth when bathroom breaks are necessary, and they get tons of people through those doors. It's a big trip for us from NC, but those Northern West Coasters never get to see our product at shows, so it's totally worth the cost if you think about the exposure alone. Plus, Seattle is *so* great, people want & love to buy handmade there, and it shows in our sales. Go UCU!"

"Would you believe that I am still counting down the days until the next Urban Craft Uprising? It's literally in the back of my mind -- every single day. I don't know if I can put my finger on it -- but there's just something about that show -- something aside from the piles of money -- that really just lifts my spirits. Maybe it's 10,000 people all tramping through the Seattle Center to get to a huge room filled with handmade crafts? Maybe there's something about that that just makes me like people in general a little more. Yes, it's true. I'm saying the UCU is good for humanity. And it is."

UCU is my FAVORITE craft show. I have looked forward to it each year as much as the holidays. Now that there is a summer show too it is just amazing! Last year Nicky and I were married on July 31st and I kid you not I was up the next morning loading in for the summer show. There is so much to love....a huge craft show...variety...and everyone has all their new creations out. My mom even planned her 2008 winter trip out to coincide with the show because she had heard so much about it!"
