The American Craft Show has rolled into town for a three day celebration of all things handmade at Fort Mason Pavilion. Weekend plans suffering from a dearth of design? Here's your solution!

ACS is hosting more than 250 of the country’s top contemporary jewelry, clothing, furniture, and home décor creators at the event. If you've been to some of the other maker bazaars in town, like Renegade and West Coast Craft, you know that the Bay Area loves a good craft fair. But, as much as ACS draws shoppers, it's a more calm environment than the free events. You're unlikely to get jostled in the crowd, and you'll actually have time to talk to the artists.

(While you're there, be sure to check out the curated booth from our friends at BobCut magazine, too. Just look for the dreamy Room & Board lounge area.)

Didn't buy tickets in advance? No problem. You can still pay $14 at the door to meet the country's top emerging artists and check out their wares. Jennie Lennick (of Jenny Lemons) also has a few free VIP tickets up for grabs at her shop in the Mission (3043 24th Street), so ping her on Insta if you're short on cash and super into craft.

Show hours are Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4, 10 am–6 pm, and Sunday, August 5, 10 am–5 pm. Parking inside Fort Mason is limited on Friday afternoon for Off the Grid and Sunday for the farmer's market, so consider taking public transportation or a ride share if you don't want to lose your mind en route to the show.
