The 12th Annual Renegade Craft Fair September Market returns to Wicker Park this September 6+7 on Division St. between Damen and Paulina Avenues. This fair will host one of the largest curated gatherings of indie craft makers in the US. Market hours are from 11 am – 6 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
Shoppers will find a variety of outstanding handmade goods at the Fair – ranging from one-of-a-kind jewelry, stationery, clothing and accessories, to leather goods, art prints, housewares and much more.
Expect a lively atmosphere at the fair, appropriate for all ages. DJs from Reckless Records will be spinning both days to keep the atmosphere lively as you peruse each booth. Lots of delicious food will be available for your enjoyment, including Mana Food Bar, Dia De Los Tamales, Seasons Sodas, and Chicago’s Doghouse among other artisan food vendors. Protea Wine will be selling and sampling wine, plus Goose Island and Tito’s Vodka will be available at the bar.

Join in on the handmade fun with several workshops hosted by The Chicago School of Shoemaking and more. At the BERNINA sewing workshop, participants can Sew Pink for the Cause by sewing out a quilt block in support of breast cancer awareness.
