Come shop along the 800 block of Upshur Street NW 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 Timber Pizza Company, Hank’s Cocktail Bar, Petworth Citizen or Slim’s Diner if you need a warm-up. Lighthouse Yoga Studio will be hosting their annual open house. And don’t forget to head to Annie’s Ace Hardware to pick up your Christmas Tree.

This year the annual holiday market features 50+ local crafters, artists, and food vendors as well as live music performances from some of DC’s hottest locally-grown bands recruited by Listen Local First.

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.”
