The Alltech Arena was filled with many local and non-local artists with booths set up for the Kentucky Crafted Market. There were lines out the door to get in and see what the artists had in store for patrons.

There were vendors all around the arena and also in the large conference room. Many booths throughout that housed baskets, woodworkers, clothes, paintings, and more that were all handmade.
