San Francisco, we’re heading your way April 1-2 for Renegade Craft’s two-day indoor show! Rain or shine, it is one of the best places this spring to discover design-forward businesses that practice small-batch production. You’ll find over 250 creative designers, artists, and craftspeople. Among them are several of our fellow Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay businesses!
Renegade Craft is hosted at the Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason, a wonderful arts & culture event venue. This destination makes a great day trip, because you can walk from Fort Mason along the Marina green, with beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Then, you can head on to one of our favorite San Francisco landmarks, the Palace of Fine Arts.
We’re always thrilled to share our work at San Francisco venues, because we meet residents from all over the Bay Area and visitors from around the world. Plus, it’s inspiring to meet other small businesses who are doing amazing work throughout California and across the US.
So come along to Renegade, and hunt for unique home, fashion, self-care, beauty, and food products. Plus, if you’re already planning for Mother’s day, spring weddings, and other celebratory get-togethers, there will be no shortage of sweet gifts.
Keep an eye out for these Santa Cruz and Monterey creatives especially!
