Don't have the modern-day Martha Stewart skills to pull off all those crafty projects on your Pinterest board? Returning to LA for its fifth year, the Renegade Craft Fair is bringing an entire weekend of shopping, DIY workshops and all-around summer fun to DTLA's State Historic Park. Happening July 20th and 21st from 11am to 7pm, the free extravaganza will showcase over 250 vendors both local and from around the country.
Hit up the two-day fest to shop handcrafted jewelry, clothing from indie designers, one-of-a-kind art, unique home goods and plenty more handmade wares. A few stylish standouts that'll be repping LA include boho chic tees from Neoclassics, freeway-inspired jewelry from L. Makai and earthy-meets-edgy accessories from Pangea by K.
Those looking to unleash their inner do-it-yourselfer can attend a variety of workshops led by experts from the online craft community Kollabora and others. Plus, ultimate indie radio station KXLU will be providing the soundtrack while attendees treat their tastebuds to grub from the Green Truck, India Jones Chow Truck and other gourmet meals-on-wheels eateries.
Now that wedding season is in full swing, DIY-minded brides and grooms (or guests) are sure to find tons of big day decor and gifts galore. Get prepped for the event and check out the entire list of vendors here.
