About Us


For more than 15 years, jewelry enthusiasts (like you!) have been traveling from across the nation to experience the largest jewelry-making show on the East Coast.

Creating jewelry art is the foundation of Bead Fest Philadelphia, but it’s you – our creative attendees – who inject life and excitement into our event. That’s why we’re thrilled to offer expert-led workshops for just about every technique you can imagine. Whether you’re an aspiring artist on a tight budget or an established professional looking to invest in your education, we have the perfect workshops and shopping for you.

Bead Fest is a creative gathering you have to experience in real life to believe! Joined by fellow enthusiasts, encouraging instructors, fan-favorite exhibitors and talented artisans, Bead Fest is the place to get the YOU time you deserve.

Bead Fest events are presented by F+W, A Content + eCommerce Company. We are committed to providing the very best experience for our consumers across our niche categories – craft, art, writing, design, outdoors, and lifestyle. Our passion shines through in what we do.
