For three weeks every year beginning on Memorial Day weekend, downtown Charleston, South Carolina becomes an arts mecca with two major arts festivals running concurrently. The Spoleto Festival USA, is an arts festival with over 150 performances, and the companion Piccolo Spoleto Festival features over 500 events in the preforming, visual and literary arts. Combined, the events bring over 250,000 arts enthusiasts into the downtown Charleston area.


Fine Craft Shows Charleston proudly presents the Piccolo Spoleto Craft Shows for 2017. These three-day shows represent our 38th year participating as a part of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival. We strive to provide festival attendees with an overview of the high quality of original works currently being created in a variety of craft media. Approximately 120 fine crafts artists from around the US participate in the one or both of the shows, which are held on the first two weekends of the festival. Both emerging and experienced craft artists are invited to apply to participate. Artist demonstrations – both scheduled and impromptu – are a highlight for show patrons.
