Vendors have been announced for our INDIEana Handicraft Exchange 10th Anniversary Show! To see the full list, head to our vendor page!
Our 10th Anniversary Summer Show will be held at our usual venue, the Harrison Center for the Arts, located at 1505 North Delaware Street Indianapolis, IN 46202 on Saturday, June 17th. The event begins at 12 noon and will end at 8pm and is held in conjunction with The Independent Music + Art Festival, known as IMAF. Admission is free to the public!
Now in its 16th year, IMAF was created to honor local musicians and artists who perform original live music and create original work, and provide a unique opportunity for interaction with other local artists and the community. Bands scheduled to appear in the courtyard of the Harrison Center include: Brandon Wadley Music, The Yellow Kites, Ray Wyatt, Coyote Talk, Crescent Ulmer, Bonesetters, Spissy, Bullet Points, Legacy of Triumph, Native Sun, Joe Hamgeri, and I Dream in Evergreen.
Parking for the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange and IMAF can be found on neighborhood streets surrounding the venue and the parking lot at 16th & Alabama. We look forward to sharing contemporary craft, food trucks, beer, and live music with you in June!

The Indiana craft beer community was tending a small flame for a few decades before Sun King Brewing Co. came along in 2009 and dumped gasoline on it. With a focus on seasonal and specialty beers, hyperlocal distribution, and a commitment to canning its three year-round beers, Sun King drew attention from the national beer community even as it limited its sales to Indiana. In the last six years, Sun King has become one of the largest craft brewers in the state, collaborating with internationally renowned breweries such as Oskar Blues and Three Floyds, and taking home a raft of medals from international competitions like the World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival. Sun King’s commitment to central Indiana is also expressed in its community partnerships, bringing new audiences to established organizations and investing in small events (like the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange) that fill the Circle City’s increasingly busy and diverse cultural calendar.
Popcorn makes people happy. That might go a long way toward understanding Mandy and Carly, the effervescent twin sisters who own and operate Just Pop In!, Indy’s leading gourmet popcorn maker and retailer. Whether you prefer your popcorn slathered in beer cheese, pina colada mix, or chocolate and ginger, JPI has something to fit every taste at their Broad Ripple headquarters, their Indianapolis International Airport shop (we hear KISS’ Gene Simmons is a fan) or one of their retail partners like, say, Homespun: Modern Handmade. From the IZOD Indy Car series to the Indy Film Fest and the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange, JPI shows favor to local flavor, spreading happiness everywhere they go.
Tia Agnew and Brett Canaday have been finding their own way since 2006. The couple started slinging bottles of mead, or honey wine, that year out of a converted commercial garage in Elwood, Ind., a small town northeast of Indianapolis. New Day grew, moved its retail operation, and then its production, to Indianapolis. It expanded into hard ciders, refining its product mix into a selection of year-round ciders (Gold Rush, South Cider, and Johnny Chapman) and meads (ReThinker hopped blueberry, Washington’s Folly cherry, Shelby Blue Ribbon strawberry & rhubarb, and Live Currant) as well as seasonals and specialties. New Day Craft beverages can be found at a growing number of bars, restaurants, and package liquor stores, as well as at the company’s tasting room at 1102 Prospect St. Find Your Way.
