Craft City Food & Art Tour 2020

To ensure the safety of our community and to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the Center for Craft has temporarily suspended our public programming, including our Craft City Food & Art Tour schedule for spring/summer 2020. Following state and federal recommendations, the Center looks forward to announcing 2020 tour dates as soon as possible.

We can't share our favorite local brews, craft cocktails or handmade wares with you right now, but we hope you'll consider supporting our 2019 tour partners during this unprecedented time! Please consider visiting their websites to purchase a gift card, an item from their shops, or to make a donation today.
