Pedaler’s Fair will showcase Washington-made bike goods and art

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.

Swift Industries and Go Means Go are organizing the fair, which they hope will support and highlight all the creative people in Seattle and around the state who make things for and about bikes.

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!

    My roommate and I made a point to drive down to Portland (with our bikes) for BikeCraft this past December, and were really underwhelmed with what we saw there. I recommend having some people there talking seriously about greenways and bike advocacy, and possibly some people discussing actual bicycle design. Wallets made from old bike tubes are cool, but bike people also want to talk about bikes and biking.
