The 38th annual Dover Spouses' Club Craft Show is on Nov 5, 2022 at POLYTECH High School. As always, our show will be exclusively for homemade goods. No commercial products will be accepted.
This craft show serves as the primary fundraiser for the Dover Spouses' Club's welfare endeavors. All proceeds from vendor booths and shopper admission are donated to local, state, and national charities, as well as scholarships for local military dependents.
For many years we held our craft show at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington. COVID-19 forced the DSC to cancel the 2020 craft show, at which point the fairgrounds company decided to begin hosting their own annual craft show instead, requiring us to find a new location. Last year we tried out the Del Tech campus, but ultimately the space proved too limiting for the number of vendors we could accommodate, and overcrowding was certainly an issue.
We scouted many locations in recent months, and we’re excited about our new partnership with POLYTECH High School! This year we’ll ensure wider aisles, and we have room for 92 booths (nearly double what we had last year at Del Tech). All spaces will be indoors.
As we reboot our craft show, all vendor applications this year will be evaluated by our committee through a juried process. Vendors are required to submit photos with their application regardless of previous show participation. Applications without photos will not be considered.
We are also returning to an online application in hopes that more efficient records will lead to easier returning vendor applications in the future. If you are not able to submit digital photos using the Google Form, you may email or mail printed photos separately. If you cannot use the Google Form at all, please print the paper application (download below) and mail it with printed photos. Booth spaces are 10 x 10 and cost $200 for a regular booth and $250 for a corner.
The DSC Craft Show is run by volunteer military spouses assigned to Dover AFB. Since the nature of military life means moving often, there is high turnover within the DSC board and the craft show committee, so please be patient with us as we adapt year to year. Thank you for enabling us to give back to our community in meaningful ways.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s craft show!
