Create Upstate is a 3-day celebration of design and creativity in Upstate NY. Once again, The schedule is  jam-packed with can’t-miss sessions and meaningful experiences. Best of all, It’s happening in (drumroll…) Ithaca, NY!

Thursday, take your time getting into town, and get ready for the most meaningful shop talk you've ever been a part of. Thursday is all about sharing your craft with your fellow makers, followed by sharing a drink and a heckuva time at their Kickoff Party.

Friday is the main event, this year hosted by the everyone's favorite design professor, Mitch Goldstein!  Industry speakers, a street fair, and an awesome after party round out the day!

On Saturday?  Ever wish you had time to explore Ithaca? Do you often feel like conferences just kinda end abruptly? Stick around for Satur-YAY, where you can discover the area together and cultivate the awesome relationships you've made. From brunch to hikes, this is a must for Upstate enthusiasts!
