About Us

10 years of retropolitan

Over the past decade The Retropolitan Craft Fair has grown from a fledgling local market into one of the premiere maker events in the Southeast. We’re proud to be part of Knoxville’s flourishing maker community and are grateful to our sponsors, vendors and patrons for making this little dream of ours a reality. Cheers to the next 10 years!
