I live in Ancaster (part of Hamilton), and we always had several quite large craft shows at our old Fairgrounds. Apparently there are still some going, even though as of 2009 the Fairgrounds are elsewhere!

One for sure:
- Ancaster Lions Craft Show (usually seemed to have a pretty decent turnout at the old grounds - not that "hip" or anything, but I've always enjoyed it and am hoping to be a vendor myself this year!) - April 4 & 5 - http://ancasterlions.ca/events/

... and I'll let you know if I hear more from any locations.

Any other craftshows you are already planning to attend?

Oh... how sad! I was entirely hoping to sell there. I wonder if it's because the building probably won't be built... hm.

And hey! Thomas More is close. I went to St Mary's.

hello!
Here's some that I have done:
Corunna (I think it's usually in May)
Leamington (Sometime in July, I think)
Ridgetown
Wallaceburg has an art in the park during WAMBO, it's pretty good
I don't know if this still goes on, but I remember there was a Tall Ships festival or whatever, when the tall ships float by Sarnia.  I sold crafts there, and did really well.

I haven't done a craft show in a few years, so I don't know if these are still up and running or what, but they were good when I did them a few years ago.

It would be a bit of a drive, but Owen Sound has Summerfolk in August, and Midland has the Mariposa Folk Festival (which is usally the first weekend of July).

Not only are there craft shows - awesome music too.
