The One of a Kind Show is an extraordinary shopping event featuring fine art and craft from a juried selection of North America’s most talented artists. Each show provides an outstanding opportunity for exhibiting artists to sell to thousands of highly qualified and enthusiastic shoppers in an ideal location and premium environment.

Launched in Toronto in 1975, the One of a Kind Show was born out of a desire to create the consummate venue for artists to sell their work during the holidays and for shoppers to buy that work. Today, the show is a wildly popular annual event in Toronto, Vancouver, New York, and Chicago. Shoppers love the One of a Kind Show because it is the best place for them to find unique handmade work that they won’t find anywhere else. They relish the opportunity to meet each artist and buy from them directly. And they enjoy the fun and easy indoor shopping experience featuring gourmet cafes, artist demonstrations, craft workshops, fashion shows, live music, coat and package check, and gift wrap and shipping services.
