Held bi-annually in May and October, The Rittenhouse Square Fine Craft Fair is organized in partnership with the PA Guild of Craftsmen and the Friends of Rittenhouse Square. Introduced in 2012, the Rittenhouse Square Fine Craft Fair is the fine craft equivalent of the much-loved Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show, featuring 140 of the Guild’s very finest craft artists. Founded in 1944 at the recommendation of Eleanor Roosevelt, the Pennsylvania Guild is one of the nation’s largest and most recognized craft guilds, specializing in the advocacy and support of more than 1,400 members whose handwork is known for its unparalleled skill and artistry. Fine craft is often defined as the hand and mind transformation of raw materials into inspired works of art. The finished products may be either traditional or contemporary in style and design. As an additional fundraiser, the Friends of Rittenhouse Square host an Outdoor Café on 18th Street on Saturday during the show in partnership with Rouge, Devon Seafood Grill & Parc.
