Quality exhibits, high attendance, the Coast Guard parade, and fireworks mean you will have a successful event and a great time while you’re here. Acceptable work includes items that are original and handcrafted by the applicant. Unacceptable work includes wholesale, mass-produced, or foreign made items as well as buy/sell work, fine art pieces, kit-art, or hobby crafts.

The onsite jury’s top votes in each category will be invited back the following year without a Jury and Handling Fee.

The Coast Guard Craft Fair pulls in a large crowd and occurs during the renowned Coast Guard Festival. The Fair’s location, Central Park, is a beautiful spot that is minutes from historical, downtown Grand Haven, Lake Michigan, and the Board Walk. As a tourist-driven, beach-side town, Grand Haven has a lot to offer. Stay at one of our many campsites, take a trip to the beach, or visit the downtown shops. Make it a trip for the whole family when you come to the Coast Guard Craft Fair.
