We’re headed back to Chicago for the 6th Annual Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market! The holiday sale will be held December 3 + 4, 2011, from 11am – 6pm, at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse at 1419 W. Blackhawk. As always it is free-to-attend and featuring over 150 of today’s best makers of handmade goods, our cozy holiday shopping spectacular will also feature hands-on crafting activities and food from some of our favorite local eateries! Warm wintertime libations will also be available!
At the Renegade Craft Fair you can expect to find only the best indie-craft and DIY artisans! Featuring both local and national talent, shoppers can anticipate a vast array of independently designed jewelry, clothing, paper goods, home + garden goods, posters, artwork, plush objects, bath + body products, and so much more!!
We hope you will join us for some festive handmade holiday shopping! You can find the Hero booth on the first floor in Gym 2 near the Cleaver St side of the building. Just enter through the main entrance on Blackhawk and head to the gym on your right, we’re booth number 65 right near the doors by the stairs! See the map below.

At the Fair, attendees can get in the holiday spirit by making their own craft at an interactive workshop! The Chicago Zine Fest will be on hand with a zine-making workshop!
Not to be missed is Renegade’s own DIY Gift Wrap Workshop, where shoppers can choose from a variety of handmade paper, ribbons, and decoration to wrap their newly purchased gifts.
Visitors can capture a sweet, surly, or goofy holiday portrait with the free photobooth from Magnolia Photobooth Co.
Local music gurus from Reckless Records, CHIRP Radio, and Dusty Groove will provide a shopping and crafting soundtrack (with the occasional holiday favorite thrown in) all weekend.
Shoppers can purchase food from local eateries MANA Food Bar, and Flying Saucer. Sweet treats will be available for purchase from local favorites Black Dog Gelato, Puffs of Doom, and Cheap Tart Bakery, and shoppers can get their caffeine fix from Dark Matter Coffee. Stay tuned for more local food vendors!
Parking is a bit tricky around the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse, so we’re offering a free-to-ride Renegade Holiday Trolley, which will travel to and from the Fair and make several stops along the Do-Division Holiday Walk and Unwrapped WPB Holiday Passport program, also occurring that weekend.
