Spring Fest

By Artists & Fleas

Experience the best of the Artists & Fleas Maker Community during Spring Fest!

Celebrate creativity with our makers all weekend long. Over the course of Saturday & Sunday, April 13-14th, members of our merchant community will showcase their creative chops with workshops, demonstrations, and more. Plus, you’ll get to meet some of the merchants behind your favorite A&F shops in the process.

We’ve also partnered with local businesses to bring a taste of each neighborhood inside our marketplaces – follow us on Instagram for the most up-to-date additions for each of our locations.
