Showcasing the talents of local craftspeople
Crafts Village is an outdoor bazaar of sorts where craftspeople display their handiwork during the State Fair of Texas.
It is a 13,000-square-foot open-air emporium with 20 booths. Art historians believe the striking mural inside one of the porticos is the work one of two noted Italian artists – Carlos Ciampaglia and Hector Serbaroli.
Crafts Village also serves as the venue for many cultural festivals during the state fair and at other times of year as well.
You'll find Crafts Village off Nimitz Avenue, between the Food & Fiber Pavilion and the Pan-American Arena.
