The Crafts Expo facilitates the promotion of new and old crafts through competition, exhibition, demonstrations, education and sale of works. It enables exhibitors of all ages and all skill levels to showcase their unique craft exhibits and compete for the ultimate accolade of being crowned Champion of Champions of the Crafts Expo.

The 2023 Crafts Expo theme is Earth, Wind and Fire. 

The Crafts Expo caters for around 20 different crafts, including a special subsection for those with disabilities. With around 1400 entries each year, the Crafts Expo is one of the most entered Sections of the Show. The quality of the exhibits is testimony to the hours of dedication and workmanship of exhibitors in their respective crafts. Importantly, the Crafts Expo also caters for those who are just willing ‘to have a go’!  All exhibits are judged (unless disqualified) and all exhibits are displayed.

The Crafts Expo (Map Ref E14) opens from 8.30am to 8.00pm on Friday and Saturday and from 8.30am to 6.00pm on Sunday.
