It is up to you what you make of the OOAK experience, so we encourage you to read through each tab below. After that, if you have any questions, we'd be happy to help!

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS YEAR

With our return to in-person shows, we are excited to now reunite our audience and makers face to face! Participation in this year's show may come with an additional set of rules and regulations to ensure we run a safe event for all.  Please note that all restrictions and requirements are subject to change.
Please refer to our website often for current guidelines.

As we continue to navigate the return of our events, this year's Winter Show will bridge the gap of the past three years, while maintaining the signature One Of A Kind experience. This year will again be a slightly smaller show (600 exhibitors) and at this time the event features and safety protocols are expected to be similar to The 2022 One Of A Kind Spring Event. These are subject to change as we get closer to the event and assess the situation as it will exist in November.
