The Art Star Craft Bazaar will be coming back to Asbury Park for its 2nd year! We will be hosting the show at Bradley Park, which is situated directly across the street from the Asbury Park Boardwalk and Convention Hall, in the midst of Asbury’s prime summer season. Join us at the beach for a celebration of all things handmade!
We are excited to be partnering again with Asbury Park based non-profit, Move For Hunger. Visit their tent for a selection of freshly prepared, vegan/veg friendly food, coffee, and teas from Long Branch, NJ based restaurant, Hello Chef. A portion of all sales will go directly to Move For Hunger.
Move For Hunger is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2009 to transform moving into an opportunity to reduce food waste and help feed the hungry. Move For Hunger is a national organization working with over 600 relocation partners and thousands of real estate agents to bring awareness to hunger in America. Currently over 1,151,000 residents of New Jersey struggle with hunger. Move For Hunger is working to ensure less food goes to waste and more is delivered to those in need. In just five years, the Move For Hunger program has delivered over 4.5 million pounds of food to community food banks nationwide. DONATE NOW to Move For Hunger.
The Asbury Park Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail/art craft show that is organized by Philadelphia’s premier indie craft shop and gallery, Art Star. Over 50 local and national artists have been chosen to set up shop and sell their wares at Bradley Park, nearby the beach and boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ.
Shoppers can expect high quality handmade goods that reflect Art Star’s unique and quirky aesthetic. Erin Waxman and Megan Brewster of Art Star have hand selected a diverse collection of artists that create anything + everything, including housewares, paper goods, jewelry, prints, ceramics, clothing, accessories, photgraphy, pet accessories, paintings/drawings, sculpture, and many other one-of-a-kind curiosities. All items have been handmade from a variety of mediums that include fabric, clay, glass, wood, paper and much more. The show will also include artists who will be selling select works (t-shirts, prints, cards, etc) that have been reproduced in small batches, if not locally, within the US. The Art Star Craft Bazaar aims to offer something for everyone (women, men, kids, moms, babies, teens, etc) at a range of prices to accommodate all budgets.
The show will also include freshly prepared food by She’s Got Balls, Dill With It, and Cha-Yen. There will be live acoustic music all day, each day brought to you by Asbury Underground. Full Line-Up HERE. “Make + Takes” with Hot Sand Glassblowing Studio ($24 to make a small sun tile or $36 to make a large sun tile) and Two River Theater (fun crafts for kids in support of their upcoming Theater For Young Audiences production of THE WAY BACK HOME ). Relax in a Lounge Tent provided by Wanderland or one of their blankets while you enjoy a snack and live music in the park!
While visiting our bazaar, we encourage guests to explore all that Asbury Park has to offer. There is a variety of great independent shops and restaurants along the boardwalk, as well as a thriving shopping district along Cookman Avenue and connecting side streets. Make to check out the Visionary Tattoo Arts Festival which will be held in the Convention Hall, right across from the bazaar!
