Announcing the BUST Magazine Craftacular x CBGB Festival!

by Maggie Carr

We are beyond excited to announce that we’re teaming up with the CBGB Festival for a pop-up BUST Magazine Craftacular in Times Square!

The CBGB Festival is taking over eight blocks of bustling midtown Manhattan for a food, music, shopping, and culture festival from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturday, October 12. Be sure to head to Broadway between 50th and 52nd Streets for over 50 vendors of badass handmade and vintage goods (as well as food that runs the gamut from specialty spreads to Thai BBQ).

After you’re finished perusing the wares of our amazing vendors, take in BMX and skate demos on on-site ramps, rock climbing, pumpkin carving (and smashing!), tons of kid-friendly activities, and free–yep, FREE!–sets by Grizzly Bear, Lisa Loeb, The Wallflowers, Divine Fits, My Morning JacketDJ James Murphy, and more. 

Yes, that sound you heard was all of us swooning.

We hope to see y’all next weekend on Broadway between 50th and 52nd Streets (closest to the 50th Street C, E, and 1 train stops and the 49th Street Q, N, and R).

Meanwhile, take a peek at our shopping list:
