I get hungry. Will there be food?
Yes! We are still finalizing the details, but expect some super delicious snacks and sweet treats available for purchase.
I get thirsty. Will there be drinks?
Yes! We will have a cash bar open for beer, wine, cocktails, coffee, soda, water.
How much does it cost to get in?
Entry is $3 for Saturday and Sunday and $10 for Red Carpet Black Friday. Youngins under 10 are free.
What is Red Carpet Black Friday? Is it worth it?
Red Carpet Black Friday is for those that want the V.I.P. treatment including complimentary beverages, great giveaways, exclusive performances, and premiere access to all the fantastic hand-made goods! Definitely recommended if you want to shop free of the crowds and be the first to discover that perfect one-of-a-kind treasure!
How do I pay?
RRCS accepts cash, check, and MasterCard/Visa at our centralized checkout. Entrance to the event and food and drink purchases must be made with cash. However, an ATM is available on site!
Do you have an ATM?
Yes! We will have one set up exclusively for the event.
How many booths are there?
A big ol' whopping ZERO. RRCS is NOT a booth-style craft show. Rather, items are organized and displayed like a department store, so you can browse through the creations of over 100 vendors in the beautiful 14,000 square feet of shopping space by moving through our "departments" including clothing, paper goods, fine art, housewares, baby, holiday, accessories, and jewelry. In fact, we will even give you a basket to carry your selections around with you while you peruse, snack, or rock out!
I'm getting dragged along to this by my husband/wife/lover/kids/friends/family.
I HATE shopping. What else is going on?
Plenty! You absolutely don't need to come to shop! We have some fantastic musical acts playing all weekend as well as live artist demos.
Should I bring the stroller?
You can, but because there are so many people attending throughout the weekend, the space can get crowded and strollers can be difficult to maneuver. Being such a big and busy event, the stroller might be a bigger hassle than convenience for you. Plus, if your youngin’ is walking, he or she will fit right in – lots of kids come to RRCS and dance to the music!
Where do I park?
Grand Center has lots of street parking and surface lots where you may find free parking. There is also an attached garage accessible from Olive Street. Garage fees vary depending on other events in the area, but will not be increased due to RRCS.Day rates are generally from $2.00 to $5.00, evening/event rates are generally from $8.00 to $10.00.

I want more music!
Our new show hours have sales wrapping up at 6pm on Saturday, but the party's not over! Mosy on over to the Contemporary Art Museum at 3750 Washington Boulevard for the official RRCS 10 after party featuring comedy and musical performances, demonstrations, a photo booth, and more!
Can I be involved with RRCS? What can I do?
Absolutely! We are always in need of help! Volunteers get a free RRCS t-shirt in exchange for working the event or the set-up or break-down of the event! We'd love to have you join our team!
Will I get a ton of emails?
NO WAY! We'll only notify you a couple of times a year about RRCS-related news and nothing else. We will not give your email to anyone – promise!
