Right now, at least a dozen EtsyAustin team members are gearing up and getting ready for this coming weekend's huge and highly anticipated Renegade Craft Fair.
The Renegade Craft Fair is a large-scale Do-It-Yourself event featuring hundreds of independent artists and their unique handmade items. RCF is held in cities across the US every year - including Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles & now Austin! The fair is known for being one of the first events of its kind, and for having top-notch indie-craft artists and designers who travel from all over the map to participate.
The fairs are juried, so that only the best arts and crafts are available. At RCF you’ll find all sorts of cool handmade stuff including clothing, housewares, posters and prints, plush items, ceramics, jewelry, stationery, and more. The fairs also feature choice local eateries, marching bands, entertainers, DJ’s, raffles, workshops, photobooths, and other festivities!
This FREE TO ATTEND craft, art, design, and DIY spectacular will run May 15 & 16, from 11am – 7pm each day, and will be held at the Palmer Events Center! Get a sneak-peek of who will be setting up shop at this year’s Austin event on the Artist Page!
The Palmer Events Center is located at 900 Barton Springs Road and offers low-cost parking in their garage adjacent to the building!
This event is huge and you won't want to miss it! See you there!
