The Spring Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail art/craft show that is organized & juried by Philadelphia’s Art Star Gallery & Boutique. Over 100 local & national artists have been chosen to set up shop & sell their wares at the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing, right along the Delaware River. The event is being held on Mother's Day weekend this year, so come to the show to pick up a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for mom or better yet, bring your mom to the show for a fun day on the waterfront!
Shoppers can expect high quality handmade goods that reflect the unique & often quirky aesthetic of Art Star.

All items have been handmade from a variety of mediums that include fabric, clay, glass, wood, paper & much more.
