About: The Annual Craft Lake City DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival is a three-day event that takes place the second weekend of August in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Craft Lake City DIY Festival is unique in that it only showcases works from local Utahns—in the following categories: artisan, kid artisan, vintage, STEM exhibitor, craft food and live performers. Artisans showcase and sell affordably priced, handmade, one-of-a-kind items that are a cross between folk art and contemporary art. Live entertainment includes performance art, street performers, two stages featuring musical acts and dance troupes, on-site DIY workshops, a children’s activity area, a youth vending area called Kid Row, the Google Fiber STEM Building, a VIP lounge, local food trucks and a bike valet. The festival attracts approximately 20,000+ attendees each year over the course of the three day event.
The purpose of the Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival is to support and elevate local artisans, entrepreneurs, small business owners, craft food creators, innovators and DIY engineers alike, no matter their socioeconomic status, while also inspiring attendees to become makers themselves as well as supportive patrons of the local DIY community and creative economy.
Earlier this month, the Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival was named, “A Must-Attend Summer Festival!” by msn.com.
