Why are we doing it?
As D.C.’s premier alternative newsweekly, City Paper promotes underground art and strives to connect the voice and vision of the indie craft community with our readers. Every fall we hold the fair which creates an experience where consumers can discover unconventional, hard-to-find arts and crafts, meet the artists, and even make something themselves.
