With over 200 vendors from eight states, the largest single-day craft show on the east coast, the Dover Officers' Spouses' Club's 28th Annual Craft Show, will be held on Sunday, November 6 at the Delaware State Fairgrounds.
All the crafters and artisans featured at the show are selected for their craftsmanship and artistic talents. All items sold at the Craft Show are handmade. Here’s a small sampling of the treasures you’ll find – Amish quilts, original artwork, jewelry, baskets, candles, pottery, ceramics, clothing, toys, holiday decor and leather goods. The food court features local organizations selling an impressive selection of breakfast, lunch and snack items for the duration of the show.
The Dover Officers' Spouses' Club (DOSC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving Dover Air Force Base families, base organizations and the local community, while providing officers' spouses opportunities to meet, socialize and network with their peers.
The DOSC Craft Show, founded in 1984 by Kay Kross, wife of retired AMC Commander, Gen. Walter Kross, is held every year on the first Saturday in November, this year November 5. More than 4,000 visitors are expected to come through gates. It's the biggest fundraiser for the Dover Officers' Spouses' Club and the Craft Show enabled the Club to give upwards of $40,000 in charitable contributions last year.
All profits from the annual Craft Show are donated to base, local and national charities. The Club also awards a large number of scholarships to dependents of military members.
The show is open from 9am to 4pm. Admission is $4, children under 12 are free. There is free parking.
