Renegade Craft Fair, a curated showcase of the very best in modern craft and design, returns this summer for its eighth consecutive year to Downtown Los Angeles’s majestic Grand Park with over 270 carefully selected makers and artisans.
Visitors will be treated to music sets by KXLU, and a rotating assortment of food options, including Peaches’ Smokehouse & Southern Kitchen, serving slow-smoked BBQ and classic Southern dishes made from scratch, Baby’s Badass Burgers, Falasophy, and India Jones Chow Truck. As a special summer treat, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream will be hosting an ice cream tasting, along with a special talk on entrepreneurship with Founder Jeni Britton Bauer, where she will share her experience growing a small business.
Official RCF Media Sponsor Time Out Los Angeles will raffle off a goodie bag worth over $1,000, full of handmade products from the Fair’s makers. The winner for the raffle will be chosen at random following the Fair.
Attendees will also be able to capture the occasion through timeless instant archival prints by Magnolia Photo Booth Co., take a peek at Yarnover Truck’s unique mobile yarn store, and visit Maude, a solar powered, eco-friendly mobile boutique located inside of a hand-restored 1962 Shasta Travel Trailer.
