Calling all Washington crafters, makers, artists and bike lovers: The first ever Pedaler’s Fair will be held in Ballard April 21-22, and they want you to sell and demo your stuff.
They got the idea from Portland’s annual BikeCraft fairs.
“We thought, ‘We don’t have anything like that in Seattle, that would be really cool,'” said Jason Goodman from Swift.
In addition to the fair, there will be music, workshops and a beer garden with locally-crafted beers. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Washington High School Cycling League, which promotes high school mountain biking programs.
If you want a space at the fair, you need to register online by March 31. A basic table space is $85 for two days.
More info from the Pedalers’ Fair:
We hope to showcase handcrafted goods from across the state, not just the Seattle area. There will also be free workshops, music, food, a beer garden and who knows- maybe some pleasant surprises.
Pedaler’s Fair was borne of a strong belief in buying local and supporting people that make things themselves. We enjoy having a connection with the products we use on a daily basis.
Whether you are new to cycling, a seasoned rider, or someone that is just curious about handmade goods are being made in Washington state, you are invited to come peruse amazing wares celebrating the bicycle.
This is our first year with many more to follow. Please spread the word!
