All you need to know to come shop at Hover Craft on Sunday, December 1st!

Location: Hover Craft is located at 333 N. Plankinton Avenue in downtown Milwaukee. Click here for a map!

Parking: We rented a parking lot!  You'll find it on the below map - marked RESERVED PARKING in pink.  The other green rectangles mark paid parking lots.  Please do not park in any lot that says "No Parking" - your car will be towed.


The Hop: Don't want to deal with parking?  Don't!  Park anywhere downtown and take The Hop!  The Hop is a FREE streetcar that drops you off right in front of The Pritzlaff Building.  Get off at Saint Paul at Plankinton and you'll be about 10 steps from the door of the event. Get all The Hop info here!

Tickets: Entry to Hover Craft is $5 at the door.  Children are free. Although many vendors accept cards, it is cash only at the door.  Selling tickets helps us pay for the space to host Hover Craft.  Your ticket makes sure that Hover Craft exists.  Thank you!

Bags! The first 200 people through the door will receive a limited edition, high-quality Hover Craft bag.  Be one of the first and we will not only give you a bag, but we will give you a $5 gift certificate to The Waxwing or Milwaukee Home so you can keep shopping local this holiday season.

Accessibility: The entire event is fully accessible to all ability levels. Bring all your friends!

What to expect: There are over 110 vendors selling items they have made - whether they are crafters, artists, makers, designers - you'll get to speak directly with the person who created the work they are representing.  Feel free to ask them any questions and get the scoop.  Each vendor has intimate knowledge on each piece.  We handpick from hundreds of applications to ensure a very wide selection of goods - you'll be pleased to know you will be able to find something for everyone on your Christmas list.

There is coffee!  Colectivo coffee will be there for all your coffee needs.

There is food!  We have Honey Pie, Comet Cafe and Pedro's Empanadas selling light lunch and snacks.

There are drinks!  Pritzlaff will be hosting a full bar with bloody mary's, beer and cocktails. There will also be plenty of non-alcoholic options at the bar as well.

The Packers will be on.  We know - it's a Sunday during football season.  We get it.  We promise to bring a tv and you can dip in to see the score or park your favorite football buddy so s/he doesn't feel like they have to miss anything!

Hover Craft supports your local creative community and it's a fun way to spend a Sunday. This will be our 10th year and we couldn't be more excited.  You you there!
