You may be asking....What is it?
The DIY Street Fair is a free 2 day Ferndale event that features artists, hand-made crafters, local and national businesses, groups and organizations, musicians, local restaurants, michigan brewers, etc who live and work with a DIY attitude.
Some of the highlights include: A main stage featuring live performances by original bands whose self-produced and/or self-released merchandise will be available in a temporary local record shop during the fair. The beer garden will allow attendees to purchase and enjoy beverages from michigan-based breweries and culinary crafts from local restaurants. Street performers and exhibitions will appear throughout the weekend. And for the Kids… a beer-free area where they can see and experience hands-on, do-it-yourself crafts and enjoy special acts on the family stage.
Who’s behind this?The street fair is organized by a diverse and passionate group of young local leaders who recognize the DIY ethic that thrives in current climates: economic, political, environmental and beyond.
How is this event different?Among the many special characteristics that push this event beyond the traditional art fair, DIY Street Fair is about community outreach and growth. It aims to be a homegrown, forward thinking solution, showcasing eco-friendly products, businesses and ideas.
