In a Special Citation, Morris Arts recognized the Morristown CraftMarket as a “nationally acclaimed fine art and craft show” and as “a major cultural and charitable event, attracting thousands of visitors each year in addition to gifted artists from over 25 states throughout the country.”

The Morristown CraftMarket is sponsored and run by the not-for-profit Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township, NJ. All proceeds from the show benefit local charities.

Made In America By American Hands

Showcased in the Morristown CraftMarket are extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine arts and crafts - all made in America by American hands.

160 American artists will display and sell their original and magnificent creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, furniture, mixed media, wearable fiber and more.

“The American artists compete in a rigorous, nationwide selection process and the panel of judges, who are peer artists, choose the best in each fine art and craft category,” said Geoffrey Price, Volunteer Show Director. 

“American Made” - which is what our charitable show is all about - means exceptional quality that will last for generations.” 

“Of course, “American Made” also means pride in America and in all we do and create in our great nation to help our growing economy.  Tens of millions of American jobs have been lost in just the last decade to overseas markets, especially China.”

50/50 Raffle to Benefit Jersey Battered Women’s Service (JBWS)

Each year in America, approximately 4 million women are battered by their partners.  Domestic abuse affects people of all socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and religious groups.  Please help us support the JBWS in its fight against domestic abuse.  All proceeds from the Kiwanis 50/50 raffle will benefit the JBWS.  Please visit the Kiwanis at Booth 604 to purchase tickets.

Big Brothers Big Sisters will be collecting gently used clothing items throughout the show.  Receipts will be issued for tax-deductible donations of clothing items accepted at the collection truck located near the parking lot.
