Dartmouth Handcrafters Guild was created in 1974 when six craftspeople came together with an idea born from a shared passion for all things handmade. This non-profit organization has grown through the years to serve over 125 craftspeople who participate in the annual craft show.

Delivering the best handmade goods and giving back to our community is The Guild’s top priorities; they take deep pride in donating its profit to local charities each year. Charities are invited to write to the guild requesting a donation and the board makes a choice each year based on the applications submitted. Since its inception, the guild has donated over $250,000 to over 90 charities across Nova Scotia.
