Luray Craftique to be Held Oct. 21

Luray Craftique 1The Vesper Vintage and Luray Craft Fair have come together to form the Luray Craftique on Saturday, October 21 from 9 AM to 3 PM in Luray.

The event features over 170 vendors, giveaways for the first 100 guests, vintage repurposed antiques, handmade crafts, upcycled food, raffles and more.

In addition to the normal arts and craft vendors, the Luray Craftique has also had the incredible fortune to be able to partner with the Vesper Vintage event. The Vesper event experienced a loss of venue for their antique market, and instead of closing, they are just moving over to the city of Luray for that day.

The Luray Craftique is one of the largest craft fairs in the state of Kansas, and possibly the largest mostly indoor market. The town and citizens of Luray has offered up many of their vacant buildings and lots for use at the Craftique, thus giving the vendors over 100 indoor spaces to choose from and tons of outdoor space. The event will be in more than six buildings throughout town, all within walking distance of Main Street Luray.Luray Craftique 2

The Craftique is a non-profit event, where shoppers can come and shop with the entrance fee of a canned good. All profits from the event benefit the Luray Food Pantry and the Luray Senior Center.

Luray is a small community located about one hour from both Hays and Salina, and about 25 miles north of Russell. If you would like more information about how you could be a vendor/guest at the Luray Craftique, please email the event hosts at [email protected]
