RENEGADE WAS FOUNDED FOR MAKERS BY MAKERS
Renegade Craft is the world’s largest curated showcase of independent craft and design.
To create a vibrant and lively marketplace that reflects and illuminates the work of today’s modern makers. We strive to keep our events relevant to emerging and established designers alike, focusing on the highest quality goods and the freshest voices.
Equal parts entrepreneurial incubator and community gathering space, it all culminates in a lively celebration of contemporary craft and design culture. Our Fairs feature hundreds of makers, interactive elements, inspired locales, artisanal food and libations, great music, and good times.
Founded in Chicago in 2003, Renegade was the first event of its kind. Expanding gradually, city-by-city, it has evolved into the widespread and influential presence it is today, continuously championing the global indie-craft movement.
Renegade is the farthest reaching craft showcase in the world and attracts 300,000 attendees annually across multiple events in 12 major cities in the U.S. and U.K., including Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Miami, Boston, Detroit, and London.
We look forward to expanding our reach to more cities, exploring new endeavors, continuing to push the creative economy forward, and striving to elevate the contemporary craft experience while keeping it accessible to all.
