Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is an exhibition and sale of handmade goods from independent artists that originated 14 years ago in Washington, DC, presented by the Washington City Paper. The Charleston City Paper is thrilled to present the inaugural Charleston event Saturday, December 2, 2017 at Joe Riley Park.

Why are we doing it?
As Charleston’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.

When is this event and how do I find it?
Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair Charleston will take place at Joe Riley Park on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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!

And because this is the season of giving, we will also be collecting unwrapped toys at Crafty Bastards Charleston to be donated to the Tricounty Family Ministries Christmas Brunch.
