Get ready for the largest, hippest, most craft-tastic event Jersey City has ever seen: the second annual “Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair.”
Entry is $5 and includes a free raffle ticket. Children under ten get in for free! The first 100 folks through the door on event day will receive a goody bag packed with fun items from vendors and sponsors.
• VENDORS GALORE!!!
More than 60 artisans and artists will be showcasing and selling their handmade wares, all with an unusual spin—from curious furniture to risque home goods, jewelry made of bullets to bags of exotic leather, nifty baby gear to schnazzy attire, and so much more!
To energize the crowd, regional bands, Land of the Look Behind, Any Day Parade, Kelly St. Patrick, Christina Alessi, and Hezekiah Jones, will be playing tunes throughout the day.
• FOOD AND DRINKS!!!
Newport waterfront staple, Michael Anthony’s will be tickling shoppers’ taste buds with a variety of delectable bites for sale.
Plus, brand new microbrewery from North Bergen, NJ Beer Co., will be introducing three handcrafted beers. Our attendees will be the very first to try what is sure to become a local favorite frosty beverage.
• PLUS, we'll practice putting the "fun" in Fundraiser!
“Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair” is pleased to support Arts to Grow, a non-profit dedicated to providing inner city children, with little or no access to the arts, the chance to explore the visual, literary and performing arts. A portion of proceeds will benefit this worthy charity.
SPECIAL THANKS to light architect extraordinaire, Norm Francoeur, for providing spectacular displays that'll tantalize your eyes.
