DIY Street Fair in Detroit


The peeps at Handmade Detroit tip us off to this new event happening in Ferndale called DIY Street Fair, which happens this weekend. Here’s what you can expect:

This free 2-day event invites artists, hand-made crafters, local and national businesses, non-profit groups and organizations, musicians, local restaurants, michigan brewers and others who live and work with a DIY (that’s, “do it yourself”) ethic.
Highlights include: a main stage featuring live performances by 30 original bands; a beer garden where guests can sit, relax and enjoy beverages from michigan-based breweries and culinary crafts from local restaurants; street performances, artist/vendor demos; and for the kids … hands-on, do-it-yourself crafts workshops, and entertainment. We know everyone will enjoy this new Ferndale tradition and we look forward to seeing you here!

Find out more and check out the craft vendors on the DIY Street Fair website.
