Why are we doing it?
As Nashville’s premier alternative newsweekly, the Nashville Scene promotes underground art and strives to connect the voice and vision of independent artists with our readers. The festival creates an experience where consumers can discover unconventional, hard-to-find arts and crafts, meet the artists, and even make something themselves.

What kinds of crafts will I find?
You will find talented artists handpicked by a select jury for their DIY chops and singular vision. There’ll be surprises at every booth including unique homegoods, clothing, punk-rock baby clothes, handcrafted jewelry, plush toys, DIY kits, screen-printing, original art, locally produced food, and much more.  See the vendor lineup for details.

Will there be food?
You bet! We’ll have the choices of Greek food to some hot dogs. Retro Sno will also be making an appearance so bring your sweet tooth!

Where do I park?
Here is a handy-dandy parking map to help you find a place to post up your car while you shop!  Additional street parking is also available.
