SALT LAKE CITY, May 13, 2016 — Craft Lake City is excited to announce this year’s participating exhibitors, performers and food artisans for the 8th Annual DIY Festival Presented by Harmons. The DIY Festival is held annually at the Gallivan Center, located at 239 S. Main Street. This year, the Festival will be held for three days: Friday, Aug. 12 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 13 from noon to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 14 from noon to 7 p.m.
After receiving almost 800 applications across all categories, the Craft Lake City jury underwent the difficult task of selecting over 250 artisans, craft foodies, vintage vendors, commercial vendors and non-profit organizations. The accepted applicants represent a wide range of Utah’s DIY movement. Attendees of the three-day festival can expect to find items created by local artisans such as handmade and up-cycled clothing, crocheted goods, lighting displays, furniture, screen-printed designs, handmade body care products, stencil artwork, photography, jewelry and much more.
The festival will also include over 100 DIY engineers, commercial food vendors and performers. Craft Lake City will showcase the work of DIY engineers in the Google Fiber STEM Building. DIY engineers include individuals creating robotics, bicycles, alternative energy ideas and LED lighting solutions.
“One of my favorite elements of planning Craft Lake City’s DIY Festival is when we get the results of our festival jurors!” says Angela Brown, Executive Director of Craft Lake City. “It is thrilling to see the talent we have in our community.”
