Homemade Holiday Fairs
Afraid you missed all the holiday fairs? Here's three still upcoming where you can find, locally made, handcrafted crafts, art and cookies!
Now in it's third year in Seattle, the Renegade Craft Fair sets up shop in Hangar 30 in Magnuson Park, with some of the best craft wares around. There are more than 200 independent makers—the top talent from across the country. In addition to a selection of homemade goods, there’ll be DIY workshops, local foods, seasonal cocktails, DJ sets and more. Dec. 16 and 17. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 6310 NE 74th St., Seattle. Free.
This holiday fair is a sweets lover's dream come true. Local pastry artisans and thousands of baked goods descend upon Seattle Center for Cookie Fest in December. You will want to get there early since the event usually sells out and there will be a line. Professional CookieFest-goers know to bring cookie tins and Tupperware for their finds, but there will be bakery boxes available too. Bakers include favorites like Dahlia Bakery, Hello Robin, Street Treats and Grand Central Bakery. Cookies are $15 for a dozen or $1.50 each. December 9. 11 a.m. until things sell out. Seattle Center's Armory Loft, 305 Harrison St., Seattle.
Don’t miss South Park Arts’ Art under $100 event at the Seattle Design Center in Georgetown. In addition to all of the affordable, locally made art, there’ll be food trucks, champagne and chocolate. From paintings and ceramics to jewelry and fabric art, you're sure to find something for that hard to buy someone on your list. Dec. 16, 2 to 8 p.m. VIP hour from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. with $20 donation. 5701 6th Ave. S, Seattle. Free parking and admission.
