Crafty Arts & Makers Festival is the go-to destination for discovering unique, ethically sourced goods from independent artists and visionaries. Now in its 16th 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 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.

Local Fishtown residents Amy and Leo Voloshin founded the Fishtown Flea in 2017. The maker's market is a traveling event held in the popular Fishtown neighborhood. An addition in 2018 was a series of sample sales with the Voloshin’s popular fashion line as well as other fashion designers from Philadelphia.
Art for the Cash Poor is a fabulous annual block party-style event that allows local artists the chance to show and sell their work directly to the public in a lively social atmosphere.
The 20th installment of InLiquid’s Signature Summer Event Art for the Cash Poor returns to the Spring Arts District (1003 Buttonwood st) of Callowhill in partnership with Arts + Crafts Holdings for a one-day, outdoor-only, art festival on the parking lot next to Love City Brewery, just behind Union Transfer. This year’s event will be another festive transformation to this evolving neighborhood, fully activated by artists and local organizations.
Art for the Cash Poor features artists, designers, and crafters who make and produce their own work. All work is to be sold for $199 and below.
