The 9th Annual Upshur Street Arts and Crafts Fair this Saturday


From an email:

“Celebrate the holiday season with our 9th annual free outdoor arts and crafts festival on Upshur Street in Petworth!

Come shop along the 800 block of Upshur Street in Petworth, where businesses and restaurants will be open and vendors will be lining the street selling one-of-a-kind handmade goods. If you get chilly, you can pop inside for more unique items at Willow DC or Fia’s Fabulous Finds. You can also pick up a new read at Upshur Street Books, find a vintage treasure at Bentley’s Vintage Furniture & Collectibles or have a bite to eat at Domku or Petworth Citizen if you need a warm-up.

Musical Performances by:
12pm – Flo Anito Music
1pm – Sara Curtin
2pm – The Lucky So & So’s
3pm – Three Man Soul Machine

If your shoulders are getting sore from all the bags you are carrying, Lighthouse Yoga Center is hosting an open house and Petworth Massage will be offering sliding-fee mini-massages. Lighthouse is also having a free kids’ yoga class at 2 PM!

Once you are refreshed, walk across the street to the Petworth Library for their annual used book sale. Then pop over to Annie’s Ace Hardware, where you can pick up some holiday decorations and a tree.

Last but definitely not least, visit the kids’ annex we have in the CrossFit Petworth space, right under Annie’s. Glazed Over will be having a special ornament decorating session, there will be games and crafts for the kids, and you can decorate our wish tree with your holiday wishes. And if you have a bike that needs some holiday love, The Bike House is offering a winterize-your-bike tuneup session from 12-3.

We can’t wait to see you there!”

  • This sounds great but I wish organizers would be more aware of the population of really young kids in the neighborhood. ie-most of us are stuck at home with napping kids in the afternoon. this kind of event would be so much easier if it started at 9:30 or 10am.

  • This posting would be a lot more helpful if it actually included the hours of the fair! According to their FB page the event will be from 11-4.
