We Go As Far As We Grow: An Art, Craft & Care Market in San José, CA

We at San José Made are so excited to announce our first big event of 2021: We Go As Far As We Grow: An Art, Craft & Care Market. In partnership with San Jose Woman's Club, We Go As Far As We Grow will be an exciting two-day event happening on Saturday, Aug. 28 and Sunday, Aug. 29 from 11 AM to 4 PM each day. Free admission. Featuring over 40 incredible creative small businesses. 

After a year of many challenges and of very extensive personal and community-wide introspection and action, we thought it would be fitting to have our first large event’s theme be focused on GROWTH–both as individuals and as a community. 

In keeping with the theme, we want to create an experience that encourages attendees to reflect on both their past and future growth.

We'll be curating an experience featuring creative small business vendors whose work can help attendees aid this type of reflection, be it work designed for self care, work that makes you think differently or more deeply about the world around you AND/OR work that inspires or energizes or motivates you to grow–however that may be.

On our end, we'll be working on interactive installations, free zines to giveaway at the door, resources and anything else we feel could be beneficial to the overall event experience.
