about the UPSHUR STREET CRAFT FAIR

The Upshur Street Craft Fair began 14 years ago as an indoor craft market inside Domku, then the only sit-down restaurant in the area. Domku owner, Kera Carpenter, saw the event as a way to introduce the community to the few new businesses on Upshur Street but also as a way to bring the community together to support local producers. In its first year, the fair hosted 15 vendors, mostly from the immediate Petworth neighborhood, transforming the small restaurant into a bustling European-style market hall.

 

For the last several years, Julie Wineinger - owner of Willow and Lulabelle's - has led the organization of the fair. Petworth is her neighborhood, and Julie strives to make both of her shops places that contribute something special to Petworth. In 2023, Safisha Thomas of Fia's Fabulous Finds has come on board to help organize the fair. 

 

Today, the event draws vendors from all over the DMV and has outgrown the confines of Domku. This year the annual holiday market will feature 50+ local crafters, artists, and food vendors. Give locally this year!
