The Arts and Crafts Area features Japanese/Asian-inspired cultural arts and crafts. Curated by NCCBF staff, this area is very unique to this festival and features independent artisans who make and/or design all of their own products. It is located in the Buchanan Mall, amongst the famous Ruth Asawa Origami Fountains between Sutter Street and Post Street. The Arts and Crafts Area is open rain or shine from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on all four weekend days.
