Handmade Pacifica is returning to Sanchez Art Center, north San Mateo County's coastside art gathering venue, on Sunday, July 28, 2024, from 1:00 – 5:00 pm. This highly anticipated annual outdoor event brings together local artisans and makers who will be onsite to sell and share about their artistic craftsmanship.

Set against the picturesque backdrop at Sanchez Art Center, the fair features an artfully curated lineup of more than two dozen local vendors, deftly coordinated by event founder Kristina Ayala and local artist Daniele Derenzi. Upon arriving, attendees will be greeted by a bustling scene of tents and tables, each offering a treasure trove of handmade wonders.

Shoppers will delight in the variety of wares, from the brilliance of sea glass jewelry to the craftsmanship of handmade ceramics, leather goods to hand woven textiles, whimsical sea prints and photographic scenes from nature, and sustainable wood gifts to deliciously rich bath and beauty products. And, for tasty treats, savor the flavors of delectable chutney, jam, chocolate and scones available to take with.

Artisans/Makers are: A Smashing Picnic, Bootlegger Beanies, Coastside Creations, Cuppa Fog, Cocotutti Chocolate, dnd Studios, Food for Faces, JHC Pottery, Kaoru Sanchez San Francisco, Left Coast Sea Glass, Little Green Plant Bar, Lovey's Tea, MAE Leather Goods, Mama J Glass, McQuade's Celtic Chutney, Naptime Designs, Pacifica Provisions, Pufferfish Press, Rennie Goods, Ro Papercut, Sawdust & Sand Woodworks, Shampas Pies, Sheila Loggan, Shen Aroma Farms, Skeletal Dropkick, and Small Batch Jam Co. Plus, local favorites Pacific Java can keep you alert with an energizing beverage and the Moonraker food truck will offer hearty sea fare to enjoy onsite, replenish from shopping and keep enjoying the art!

PLUS, several Sanchez Art Center studio artists will also open their creative spaces to welcome the public, providing opportunity to engage with them and gain deeper insight into their practice.

Event organizers highly recommend walking, biking or carpooling to ensure an enjoyable time and minimize parking challenges (limited onsite parking with street parking also available).
