Localists about town, including Diane Toepfer of Ferdinand; her husband Ron
Harrity, who runs Peapod Recordings;
former Phoenician and current Bollardian Sean Wilkinson; and Noah
DeFilippis and Amy Teh, who own the Pinecone+Chickadee design and
silkscreening studio, are organizing a juried craft fair scheduled for September 13 in Lincoln Park.
It’s called Picnic. The “c’s” in its logo look like Pac-Men. Hooray!
Prospective vendors need to apply by August 15 (that’s
next Friday!); they’ll be notified by August 22. Approximately 70 vendors will
be selected based on: individuality, quality of work, and overall diversity
amongst all vendors accepted, according to the organizers. An impressive musical line-up
— that includes performances by Dead End Armory, Confusatron, Cougars Kill
Cobras, and Rattlesnakes — is already in place.
