The first craft fair began in Los Angeles, California in 1960. It started as an event for local crafters to show their wares to one another, but soon became a gathering for the whole city. By 1965 there were nearly 50,000 attendees at the event. In 1967, members of the Los Angeles County Fair Association formed Southern California Craftsmen and eventually became the Pasadena Arts & Crafts Faire Society which hosts an annual crafts show that attracts more than 350 thousands visitors each year.
