What is the Renegade Craft Fair?
The Renegade Craft Fair (RCF) is a large scale marketplace event, showcasing the work of contemporary indie-craft artists. Featuring hundreds of artists at a time, vendors travel from all over to sell their handmade goods and original artwork. RCF is held in urban epicenters of creative indie-entrepreneurship throughout the US and abroad – including Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and London (UK).

What makes RCF unique?
The Renegade Craft Fair differs from traditional arts and craft fairs by focusing on DIY and indie-craft culture. Each individual fair is juried from hundreds of applications to purposefully feature a curated, eclectic array of young and emergent designers producing original and handmade goods in a wide variety of media. We feature artists with a Do It Yourself spirit – creating innovative work using traditional craft methods, but not based on preexisting patterns or products. Each event features paper goods, housewares, ceramics, bath products, jewelry, craft kits, accessories, clothing, comics, knits, curios, collectibles, artwork, and so much more!

What kinds of things does Renegade have to offer?
All of our Fairs are juried separately and each fair features a unique line-up of artists.  While we have some returning vendors and some artists who travel to participate in each and every event, we always welcome new applicants!  RCF draws thousands upon thousands of attendees – shoppers, arts and crafts enthusiasts, media scouts, bloggers and tastemakers all make a point of turning out to see what’s new and to stock up on unique artist created goods.
