After this busy, busy week in DC, the weekend kicks off Saturday with an old festival on a new date, and at a new venue. After years of hosting Crafty Bastards at Adams Morgan's Marie Reed school, the Washington City Paper is moving the indie arts event to Union Market in Northeast DC.
Crafty Bastards will feature over 140 vendors with textiles, hand-bound books, jewelry, screened t-shirts, photography, clothing accessories, stationary and much more. Unlike previous years, there will be a $5 charge to shop and peruse the creative wares from crafters from all over the East Coast. The festival will be held outside, in the parking lot just across Neal Street NE from the Union Market building (between 5th and 6th Sts) . Haven't been to Union Market yet? Not to worry; there are several transit options. Even better, the weather is forecast to cooperate: a sunny high of 62 degrees.
Crafty Bastards opens at 10:00AM this Saturday and ends at 5:00PM. (2 for 1 admission if you purchase online by Friday.)
Oh yeah: Happy Election Day!!!!
