Renegade Craft Fair, notable for its bounty of detailed jewelry, unique art prints, eccentric products and gorgeous decorating pieces, returns to Chicago Sept. 6 and 7 for its 12th annual summer market.
The Renegade Craft Fair began in Chicago in 2003 and has since traveled the nation as it has garnered the attention of craftmakers throughout the country and beyond. Focused on handmade goods, the fair will showcase endless one-of-a-kind pieces created by talented up-and-coming designers. Over 250,000 shoppers attend the fair circuit throughout the year, which travels from Chicago to Los Angeles and as far as London.
Delight in the showcase of more than 300 independent designers, each introducing their unique craft. In addition, local food and libations will be provided, from notable names such as Dia De Los Tamales, Bow Truss Coffee Roasters and Black Dog Gelato, to name just a few. Workshops will also take place, hosted by organizations such as The Rebuilding Exchange and The Chicago School of Shoemaking. Vintage vendors will display their wares for pop-up shops located on Wolcott and Wood Streets.
As you meander through the aisles of unique, hand-made goods, your ears will be treated to music spun live by DJs from Reckless Records, and delight in local snacks. The Renegade Craft Fair is an event not to miss, as it is only making a stop in Chicago until the next season. Enjoy the weekend at Renegade Craft Fair, as you will surely leave full-handed and with your creativity in bloom.
Located in Wicker Park, the Renegade Craft Fair will take place on Division Street between Ashland and Damen from 11am-6pm Saturday and Sunday.
