Crafty Bastards

Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair

Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is the go-to destination for discovering unique, ethically sourced goods from independent artists and visionaries. Now in its 15th year, the fair connects consumers with rare products they won’t find anywhere else, giving them a shopping experience unlike any other. The Washington City Paper, the District’s premier alternative newsweekly, hosts the annual event that unites artists, makers, and creatives from all walks of life.

If you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind gift or shopping for something that can add a little personality to your home, Crafty Bastards D.C. is the place to be. It’s where you can strike up a conversation with vendors and learn more about their design and production processes. It’s where you can stumble upon unexpected gems and wonder how you ever lived without them. And maybe, just maybe, it’s where you’ll be inspired to get crafty yourself.

2nd Street Festival

  • 600-1100 Blocks 2nd Street Philadelphia, PA 19123 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

ABOUT US

This is the 10th year of the 2nd Street Festival and it is because of the tremendous efforts of our sponsors, volunteers, and the Northern Liberties Neighborhood Association that this has become such a huge success. Last year, the fest raised $20,000 toward the creation of a business improvement district in Northern Liberties.

WHO WE ARE

The 2nd street festival was started in 2008 by 2nd Street business owners Owen Kamihira (Bar Ferdinand, El Camino Real), Oron Daskal (North Bowl) and William Reed (Standard Tap) with the goal of bringing people to the neighbor in a fun and engaging way. It has grown to one of the city's largest craft and music festivals.

OUR GOAL

The festival has evolved over the years. In 2015 if finally found its mission: to fund a business improvement district for the neighborhood. This entity will eventually be responsible for creating the best possible business climate in Northern Liberties by way of block beautification, improved lighting, street and sidewalk cleaning and similar benefits that will increase foot traffic.

J.O.G. Opening

 Heather Raquel Phillips is a mixed race, &nbsp;multi media artist working in performance, video, text and photography. As a Philadelphia native &amp; resident, she creates her work with a tight knit community of friends to create intimate imagery &amp; visibility for her subjects.&nbsp;  Phillips works with queer subjects to represent and produce autonomy for negated identities, striving not only for the liberation from normative compartmentalization but a refusal of the status quo. Her characterizations assume the form of tropes to walk directly through stereotypes welcoming the viewer into a conversation that questions and exposes race, gender &amp; sexual classifications as an unstable social construct.&nbsp;Her goal is to simultaneously disrupt notions of normalcy and debunk a patriarchal &amp; heteronormative power structure.  Phillips received her BFA from Tyler School of Art and her MFA from University of Pennsylvania where she was the recipient of the prestigious Toby Devon Lewis Fellowship, as well as the Stuart Egnal Scholarship Award. She has recently showed work at Mama Gallery, LA, the Ice Box Project Space and Grizzly Grizzly in Philadelphia and BLAM Gallery In Brooklyn, NY. She is currently lecturing at The University of Pennsylvania.
