About Arts & Crafts Fairs

Twice a year the CCA Student Life staff turns the Oakland and San Francisco campuses into a bustling arts bazaar supporting local artists.

These unique fairs give the Bay Area community a distinctive opportunity to buy rare and exceptionally made goods from the artists themselves.

The Public

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.

CCA's San Francisco campus is located at 1111 Eighth Street in the beautiful Potrero Hill neighborhood. Key MUNI bus lines are the 10, 19 and 55. 

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 or two in advance of the fair date and closes three to four weeks 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 a limited number of tables and chairs, yet all sellers are asked to share tables in order to accommodate everyone. Priority for tables is given to currently enrolled students. We highly encourage sellers to bring their own tables if possible.

Walk-ins might be given space if available, but only after all registered participants have checked in.

In addition, we recommend bringing tablecloths, display items, signs, and small bills to make change throughout the event.
