Welcome

We are the number one organizer and promoter of high quality art and craft shows serving the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and Midwest areas for 28 years. Owner Ron Guarneri is a fellow crafter who has exhibited his customwoodcuts.com furniture at Carousel Craft Shows events for the past 20 years.

Our craft shows are extremely successful because we are committed to spending a higher percentage of revenues on advertising than any other promoter. All craft shows are advertised with mainstream social media platforms, local papers, big black signs and Radio.

Carousel Craft Shows believes our success depends on our efforts to make our vendors successful and we are dedicated to making that happen through our advertising and quality craft show locations. 

 

Vendor Benefit Program

Carousel Craft Shows has been fortunate over the years to have many of the most talented and loyal vendors in the business attend our shows. We are successful because they are successful. We recognize that and want to ensure this strong relationship continues.

As such, we have established the Vendor Benefits Program. It's our way of saying "Thank You!" to our long time participants and to encourage new vendors to see what our shows have to offer.

 

Referral Payments

We are excited to introduce our latest and most lucrative benefit to vendors. Vendors who refer new vendors to participate in any of our shows will earn $20 per vendor referred! There is no limit to the number of vendors you can refer. Make enough money to pay for all or part of your show fees or even more!

In order for us to pay you:

  • The vendor you refer must not have done the show the previous year.
  • We have to know who you are and who you referred. Have each vendor mention that you referred them to us when they order or by sending us an email.

Easy, right? So get out there and start referring!
