Renegade is a curated gathering of the designers, makers, doers, and dreamers that define today’s craft and design communities across the U.S. and beyond.
Our Mission is to create a vibrant and lively happening that reflects and illuminates the work of today’s modern makers. We strive to keep our voice relevant to emerging and established designers alike, showcasing the highest quality goods and the freshest talent. We look to push the creative economy forward and elevate the contemporary craft experience while keeping it accessible to all.
Our Fairs feature hundreds of makers, interactive elements, our favorite locales, artisanal food and libations, great music, and good times. Equal parts entrepreneurial incubator and community gathering space, it all culminates in a lively celebration of contemporary craft and design culture.
Renegade is the farthest reaching craft showcase in the world and attracts 300,000 attendees annually across multiple events in 12 major cities in the U.S. and U.K. Founded in Chicago in 2003, Renegade has been continuously championing the contemporary craft and design movement.
Expanding gradually, city-by-city, Renegade has grown into the widespread and influential presence it is today. We look forward to exploring new endeavors and reaching into new territories in the future!
Renegade brings together artists on the forefront of their craft with a community of conscious consumers dedicated to supporting handmade and advancing the creative economy. All artists display exceptional quality, innovation, and care for their product.
