Top artists and artisans from across the U.S. will take part in Washington City Paper‘s 15th annual Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, and Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018.

A perennial favorite pop-up market of small, independent makers, Crafty Bastards aims to create an experience where consumers can discover unconventional, hard-to-find arts and crafts, meet the artists, and even make something themselves.

There will be approximately 300 vendors at this year’s fair providing a wide range of goods including handmade clothing and accessories, jewelry, toys, pottery, furniture, original art, and locally produced food items and beverages.

Held rain or shine, the fair will take place at Lot A at The Yards Park, between First Street and New Jersey Avenue along M Street SE. Advanced tickets are $6.00 for one-day admission and $10.00 for two-day admission. Tickets at the door are $8.00 for one-day admission and $12.00 for two-day admission. Kids 12 years of age and younger are free.
