Why are we doing it?
As D.C.'s premier alternative newsweekly, City Paper promotes underground art and strives to connect the voice and vision of independent artists with our readers. The festival creates an experience where consumers can discover unconventional, hard-to-find arts and crafts, meet the artists, and even make something themselves.
What kinds of crafts will I find?
You will find talented artists handpicked by a select jury for their DIY chops and singular vision. There'll be surprises at every booth including unique homegoods, clothing, punk-rock baby clothes, handcrafted jewelry, plush toys, DIY kits, screen-printing, original art, locally produced food, and much more.
