Call for Artists: Green with Indie

Spring is just around the corner and the STL Craft Mafia is gearing up for a fabulous indoor green indie craft show!

Green with Indie Craft Show

We’re looking for about 100 artists, in addition to live acoustic musical acts, eco information booths, & volunteers.

It’s a 2-day large indoor indie craft event in Webster U’s Grant Gym, March 21st (10am-6pm) and 22nd (12pm-5pm). It’s free to apply -

just go here

and submit your application online before Feb. 1st.


What does green mean to us? Green means using your resources wisely - and crafters never waste! Every scrap is used and reused - there’s nothing more earth-friendly than creativity! We are passionate about using local resources and putting our money back into our local economy

What makes this show “green”? We intend to showcase as many “green” crafts/art as possible - we challenge our crafters to think outside the box and make goods that are both earth-friendly and sustainable. All food/drink provided will be organic & local. We’re making the fair itself more environmentally friendly by banning plastic bags and encouraging shoppers to bring their own market bags or buy them from our vendors. We’ll feature an art supply freecycle booth, a make & take recycled plush station, craft demos & more. We also intend to recycle the holy crap out of everything we can before, during, and after - we’re trying to make it a no-waste event.
