Signatures Butterdome Craft Sale is a uniquely Canadian handmade marketplace in Edmonton that features the works of Canadian artists, artisans, makers, and designers from coast-to-coast. Since 1990, the show has been Edmonton’s premier holiday shopping event and has become Alberta’s favourite – and largest – craft sale. It is an annual tradition where visitors can meet passionate creatives in person, hear their stories, and feel their works first-hand. Join us at the University of Alberta’s Butterdome for an unforgettable experience and shop for handmade that lasts a lifetime.

The story of Signatures begins with glass blower John Ladouceur and jeweller Casey Sadaka in the late 1970s. With limited options for professional Canadian artists, artisans and jewellers to sell their work, John and Casey saw an opportunity to make handmade goods more accessible for creators and the public. In 1980, they founded Signatures to provide quality marketplaces where artisans and buyers could come together in a shared love of handmade.
