Anyone who’s anyone: Crafty Bastards

25 Sep

There’s already several blogs that give the 411 on events around the city, like DCist and DC City Blog. So here at New to DC I’m just going to point out upcoming popular annual events.

Crafty Bastards, as the name suggests, isn’t your grandmother’s craft show. Sponsored by Washington City Paper, it’s more in the style of independent artists from Etsy and the like. It goes on outside in the neighborhood Adams Morgan at the Marie Reed Learning Center at 18th & Wyoming from 10 am to 5 pm. In addition to vendors selling handmade clothes, jewelry, home decor, etc., there’s also live music, workshops and food. The next Crafty Bastards is coming up soon–Saturday, October 2. If you are planning to hard-core shop, I recommend going early to make sure there’s still a good selection of goods at the most popular vendors.

Street parking will be a nightmare, so either park at the garage on 18th, take the Metro (the closest station is called Adams Morgan and is about a mile away) or ride your bike (there will probably be a bike valet).

And make sure to bring cash as many of the vendors won’t take credit. See you there!
