Sponsoring Handmade Arcade (HA)  gives your business exposure to more than 9,000 HA attendees in one day as well as the unique chance to support artists working outside the mainstream by supporting Pittsburgh’s first and largest independent craft fair.

$50 thimble sponsorship for small, locally owned businesses!
HA attendees are active supporters of small, independent and locally-owned businesses and the buy local/buy handmade movement. In turn, they prefer to use their resources and time to support local, independent artists. If you are a local business with 50 or fewer employees, you qualify for our “Thimble” sponsorship level. For more information about Local Sponsors, email localsponsor@handmadearcade.com.
