Now in its 14th year, the Renegade Craft Fair returns to its roots (yes, the craft fair that started it all) by taking over Wicker Park’s Division Street for an epic weekend of design, music, food, libations and DIY workshops on September 10-September 11, 2016.

Reckless Records and indie radio wunderkind CHIRP will provide the music, as you browse world-class design and hand-crafted goods by 400+ carefully selected makers and artisans. Food and drink will be available through: EMPANADUS,Dia de los TamalesFrog JuiceBow TrussMana Food BarPuffs of Doom/Doom Street EatsBad Day DonutsChicago’s DoghousePiper & LeafHalfwit CoffeeBlack Dog Gelato, and DönerMen. Artisanal drinks will be provided courtesy of RCF sponsors Half Acre Beer Company, celebrating the spirit of DIY with an array of carefully developed craft brews, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, offering  premium vodka and lemonade.

In the mood for some DIY? BookClub will host an array of creative activities including screen printing and a clay molding stations, and offer attendees a chance to join in a moderated book club discussion, browse a read/write library featuring Chicago writers, and enjoy entertainment on their dedicated stage.  The weekend will also feature special workshops by Rebuilding Exchangeand the Chicago School of Shoemaking.

We still miss the Renegade Craft Fair store that used to be located on Division Street but you can certainly get your fill of all things crafty and artisan on September 10th and 11th in Wicker Park. The Fair is located on Division Street between Ashland Avenue (1600 W. Division Street) and Damen Avenue (2000 W. Division Street).

The fair is open daily from 11am-7pm rain or shine. And, you're welcome to bring your pup as long as it's on a leash.
