From the Adams Morgan BID, CityPaper Publisher Amy Austin writes:

It is with great disappointment that we are announcing that City Paper will not be able to host Crafty Bastards at Marie Reed this October. The challenges of producing an outdoor festival on school property have gotten progressively steeper, which led us to a decision to look for an indoor venue. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find an indoor space in Adams Morgan that has the capacity the festival needs.

For those not familiar with Crafty Bastards, you can read about it here. It’s been a consistently great event for Adams Morgan. Though, back in 2010 I wondered if the festival had gotten too large for Marie Reed.

For fans of Crafty Bastards – do you think having the event in an indoor venue is a good idea?
