CREATIVA - Europe's largest creative fair

Once a year the CREATIVA, the largest and most diverse creative trade fair in Europe, takes place at the Dortmund Exhibition Centre. The fair is aimed at all those who are active in leisure and professional activities (as teachers, educators, special educators) or would like to acquire individually designed objects. 

For more than 30 years, CREATIVA has been a permanent fixture in the German creative landscape. On average, around 650 exhibitors and 80,000 visitors meet once a year at Messe Dortmund.   

On a total area of over 40,000 square metres, all creative products and techniques can be found under one roof. The diverse range includes felting, handicrafts, spinning and weaving, quilting, wood and metal work, silk and glass painting, jewellery making, arts and crafts and design, painting and drawing and much more.   

During the fair, where exhibitors offer and declare their creative products for sale, you will also be offered numerous special interactive shows and creative workshops.


In order to provide some variety, we have designed a new and clear theme structure for CREATIVA 2019. In the future we will work with different coloured logos, which will help you to identify a topic exactly and will immediately catch your eye, so that you know in which area you are at the moment. In addition, the names of the different topics are now short and to the point. We look forward to making your visit to the fair even more colourful and easier. 

The theme worlds await you:

  1. Handicrafts
  2. Education & Business
  3. Creativa Neo
  4. Land & Garden
  5. Paint
  6. Fashion & Living
  7. pearl expo
  8. Dolls & Bears
  9. Be regionally creative

As a visitor you also have the possibility to visit the CAKE DREAMS at the weekend with your ticket. The fair is aimed at everyone whose heart beats for baking and cake decorating, be it for private or professional motivation.
