Kenan Center American Craftsmen

The Kenan Center is redesigning 100 American Craftsmen this year into Kenan Center American Craftsmen: 50th Anniversary Weekend.

Since the cancelation of 2020’s event and 2021 COVID-19 regulations, we are rescheduling the event for Saturday, July 10th and Sunday, July 11th, 2021 from 10:00am-5:00pm inside the Kenan Arena. This will coincide with other campus activities focused around the arts. Lockport in Bloom Garden Walk and Kenan Center’s g(art)en will be taking place during the same time in hopes to further engage our community. Social distance guidelines will apply along with masked requirements for all artists, attendees, staff & volunteers. We look forward to celebrating our 50th year of the show!
