IndieSacramento encourages patrons to adopt a DIY ethic with its May Market
IndieSacramento’s biannual trunk show and craft bazaar happens once again this May 2, from 10am-3pm at Fremont Park in the Midtown/ Downtown Sacramento area. The IndieSacramento May Market hopes to spread a DIY ethic throughout the Sacramento area, encouraging patrons to live both cheaply and creatively during these trying financial times. The May Market boasts over 40 craft and fashion vendors, carrying a wide variety of affordable and fashionable handmade goods. Besides having the opportunity to support local small businesses and crafters, IndieSacramento is also giving patrons the opportunity to dabble in DIY themselves by offering IndieSacramento’s first ever Craft University. The Craft University tent will offer craft demos like yarn spinning, as well as craft classes, where patrons can make a new craft, for only a few dollars to cover supplies. Check out the IndieSacramento website in April for a full schedule of the classes and demos that will be offered.
IndieSacramento’s May Market presents itself as an inexpensive day of fun for the entire family. Enjoy live music and street performers. Appreciate local food and drink – or pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park.
Nowadays families are looking for free forms of entertainment. IndieSacramento fits the bill by offering free admission and free swag bags to the first 150 patrons. Swag bags will be filled with all kinds of coupons, samples, and fun handmade items.
If you are one of the lucky few who have money to spend, come out to support the local economy and spread the wealth! You’ll find an amazing selection of hand-crafted goods, from clothing and accessories to jewelry to unique and affordable art for your home. Check out the IndieSacramento website for event details and updates.
