The Long Beach edition of the Spring 2014 Patchwork Indie Arts & Crafts Festival wrapped up this past Sunday at Marine Stadium. This semi-annual arts & crafts fair consists of a series of Sunday fests at four different locations: Long Beach, Oakland, Phoenix, and Santa Ana. Patchwork Fest emphasizes supporting the local community, and does so by not allowing anything corporate within the boundaries. To envision Patchwork Fest, imagine an arts & crafts fair, but catered to a modern trendy crowd that features local independent designers. Many locals set up their booths here, selling their wares, merchandise, apparel, accessories, foods, desserts, music, and so on. Twice a year, thousands of visitors descend upon Patchwork Fest to discover and revisit the hundreds of vendors present. Some vendors return each time, such as Bad Pickle Tees or Pop Candy. Many vendors make an appearance for the first time, such as Brown Box Bakery or Teddy Bear Republic. No matter who shows up, all visitors will definitely find something that will please their interests.

The Patchwork Fest series happens twice a year: in Spring and Fall. With each series, it runs weekend after weekend at different locations. The next Patchwork Fest will occur in Santa Ana on Father’s Day in a few weeks. In addition to new foods to try, the lineup of vendors changes, so you may find some great new gifts for your friends & family. For a free fest, what have you got to lose?
