Renegade Craft Fair Grand Park Los Angeles Dec 12-13, 2015 @RenegadeCraft #RenegadeCraftFair #RenegadeLA
 

Our Los Angeles Fair kicks off this weekend in Grand Park! On December 12−13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. you can shop for the perfect handmade gift, take part in DIY workshops, eat, drink, and be merry!

If you’re in the market for holiday gifts, we’ve got you covered with 300 makers showcasing perfect and unique options for friends and family. The Fair will take place at the centrally located Grand Park, and makers will set up shop amid the trees in revitalized DTLA across the steps from City Hall. Shop for ceramics, apothecary, home decor, leather goods, furniture, stationery, footwear, apparel, art prints, and more. All items featured in the Fair are handmade by emerging and established makers, and they provide plenty of opportunity to support the growing handmade economy.

Looking to get involved in the festivities? Stop in for a photo keepsake from MagBooth, then visit Yarnover Truck just in time to knit up a holiday gift or two. Stop into the Library Store on Wheels to shop eclectic gifts; all sales benefit the Los Angeles Public Library. Official sponsor Time Out Los Angeles will host a potted succulent giveaway for those willing to pose for an Instagram photo-op. (Planning a visit? Be sure to visit Time Out’s website ahead of time to register for a giveaway “gift box” from the Fair’s makers, valued at more than $1500!)

The sounds and tastes of the holidays will also surround shoppers as they browse the array of gifts. Community radio station KXLU will be on hand with all kinds of music from indie rock to jazz to surf to holiday hits. Come hungry as a swarm of local food trucks offer up tasty treats like gourmet ice cream, Japanese fusion, Indian street food, Argentine fare, Korean-inspired dishes, Vietnamese food, BBQ, sliders, and grilled cheese. Pre-packaged artisanal offerings such as S’mores, relishes, seasonings, pickles, marshmallows, and coffee also make excellent holiday gifts!

Getting There: The Fair will be held outdoors at Grand Park (200 N Spring St.), off of Broadway and across from the steps of City Hall. You can view a map of the area here, and get directions here. Visitors are encouraged to walk, bike, or take public transportation to the Fair. Uber is sponsoring rides for our Holiday Fairs. New users can get up to $20 off their first Uber rides using the code RCF2015. To sign up, download the app or visit uber.com/go/RCF2015.

There are several paid parking lots in the area, but parking is limited. The closest Metro stop to Grand Park is the Civic Center/Grand Park stop on the Red or Purple lines. Your leashed pets are allowed to join in on the fun!
