Highlighting Over 150 Trendsetting Artisans From The Handmade Community.
July 29th & 30th, 2017
Fair Hours: 10am – 5pm
McNichols Building, Downtown Denver
The Jackalope Indie Artisan Fair announces the return of its summer fair, with over 150 curated booths to fill Downtown Denver’s McNichols Building. This free and family friendly event returns to Denver from 10am to 5pm both Saturday, July 29th & Sunday, July 30th. Jackalope offers attendees a perfect place to find a unique gift, grab a bite from a local food truck, and participate in DIY crafting workshops.
In addition to the 150+ indie artisans that will be selling their wares, there will also be a live music on the front lawn of McNichols, as well as a full schedule of art focused workshops for attendees to take a dip into the DIY crafting world. Artisans will be hosting creative workshops, allowing attendees to get a better idea of the craftsmanship that goes into the one-of-a-kind handmade goods and products found at the fair. Workshops range from free to $35 and include all supplies to take home DIY creations. There will be activities for all ages available throughout the weekend.
New to 2017, Jackalope will also be partnering with ArtReach and accepting donations to promote their programs and services. “One of our main goals as an artisan fair was to create a free and open environment for anyone to be able to attend and learn more about handmade artistry and supporting small businesses. ArtReach is similar in their mission and even takes it a step further,” Melissa Shipley, co-founder of Jackalope Arts. ArtReach enhances lives within the community by providing access to arts and cultural experiences for people of all ages who would not otherwise have the opportunity. The organization exists to ensure people who struggle with physical, mental, behavioral, or severe economic challenges have an opportunity to experience arts and culture.
Join Jackalope Arts on July 29th & 30th at Downtown Denver’s McNichols Building for a unique, curated shopping experience featuring the top trendsetting makers & designers of local goods.
