Tomorrow is the big day! The BUST Craftacular and Food Fair is finally upon us and it's shaping up to be our biggest and best yet. This year we're returning to SoHo to kick start Earth Day celebrations with over 100 enthusiastically eco-friendly vendors. Shoppers will be able to enter a raffle for coveted prizes. Whether you want to treat yourself to some high-quality handcrafted goods to show your love for Mother Earth or your other mother in time for Mother's Day, there's no doubt you'll have a blast at this one-day-only craft and food extravaganza at 82 Mercer Street.
The festivities kick off at 11 am with extra incentive for early birds: the first 300 guests through the door will receive complimentary reusable tote bags filled with rad swag! The entry fee is $3, which includes a free raffle ticket. The party goes until 7 pm, and shoppers can expect to enjoy hot jams from DJs and a live set by Twin Peaks-obsessed electronic duo Silent Drape Runners.
Since we all know shopping can work up an appetite, this year's fair features a bigger-than-ever food area with even more options for guests of all ages and diets. You can recharge with fair-trade coffee from Java Love Coffee Roasting Co., chow down on tacos and burritos from Dos Toros, or satisfy your sweet tooth with Fatty Cakes NY's totally bonkers cookies. And since no food fair is complete without some meals on wheels, the Coolhaus NY ice cream truck and vegan champs Cinnamon Snail will be parked just outside. Thanks to our sponsor Red Jacket Orchards, guests will be sipping on complimentary organic juice!
BUST Magazine's award-winning Craftacular and Food Fair is a can't-miss event. We hope to see y'all there! For a list of our vendors, click here.
