About Arts & Crafts Fairs
Twice a year CCA Student Affairs staff turns the idyllic Oakland campus into a bustling arts bazaar supporting local artists and giving the Bay Area community a distinctive opportunity to buy rare and exceptionally made goods from the artists themselves. See pictures from past CCA fairs.

The public is invited to shop for one-of-a-kind, handmade, affordable gifts created by the CCA community: paintings, drawings, cards, jewelry, ceramics, hand-blown glass, clothing, photography, textiles, toys, baked goods, and more. Discover unique gifts while enjoying live jazz music and refreshments.
CCA's Oakland campus is located at 5212 Broadway at College Avenue, conveniently located within walking distance from the Rockridge BART Station and AC Transit bus lines. For directions, see Maps & Directions.
Participation in the Holiday and Spring Arts fairs is open to all CCA students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Online registration typically opens a month in advance of the fair date and closes the week prior. Participation is free; we only ask all items for sale are handmade and that all sellers help with the setup and breakdown of their tables.
CCA provides tables and chairs, yet all sellers are asked to share tables in order to accommodate everyone. We highly encourage sellers to bring their own tables if possible. Walk-ins are given space, but only after registered participants have checked in. In addition, we recommend bringing tablecloths, display items, signs, and small bills to make change throughout the event.
The online registration form will be available in December for the Holiday Fair and in April for the Spring Fair. Sign up now for CCA's News & Events newsletter and watch for the announcement closer to the event.
