The Upshur Street Art & Craft Fair began 11 years ago as indoor market organized by Kera Carpenter owner of the now closed Domku. Nathan Hill of Petworth based Nh.d studio has designed artwork and helped organize the fair for the last 8 years. In 2014, Julie Wineinger, the owner of Willow took the reins and expanded the fair to include a music and food lot behind Petworth Citizen. Wineinger says, “The Craft fair is my absolute favorite day of the year on Upshur Street. The Petworth community is incredibly supportive and we have such a fun time hanging out with neighbors while supporting some fabulous artisans.”

The 3rd Annual Kid’s Fair will be at CrossFit Petworth and feature a bounce house, kid crafts and tree decorating! As is the tradition, the Petworth Public Libary will host its annual book sale the same day.”
