Looking for some great entertainment mixed with arts, crafts, great food and drink all tied in to a do-it-yourself work ethic? Well, look no further than the DIY Street Fair happening September 16, 17 and 18, 2011 in Ferndale!
This one-of-a-kind fair showcases local artists, businesses, organizations, crafters, musicians and restaurants all who hold the same do-it-yourself attitude. It is one big celebration that is based on the independent Michigan spirit and those who live it daily.
The DIY Fair is organized by some of the young community leaders who recognize the important of the DIY ethic. They have a passion and understanding of how a strong, positive work ethic can make Detroit and the surrounding communities thrive. The fair showcases local merchants and artists and shows how keeping close to your roots and using forward thinking can be productive and successful.
