We're back!

Big news! IndieSacramento is back and better than ever! And we're kicking it off right with a brand-new redesign!

Local businesses, fashion designers, and crafters challenge you to "shop local" this holiday season

Saturday, December 6th from 10am-6pm, prepare yourself for Sacramento's largest trunk show and craft bazaar. The event will be held in midtown Sacramento, near Sutter's Fort (see the website for exact location). This year's IndieSacramento will coincide with a midtown-wide holiday celebration that will include horse-drawn carriage rides, hot cocoa and coffee stations, and midtown's first-ever tree lighting ceremony. With the support of Sacramento's Midtown Business Association, this pre-holiday show will kick off a monthly event to be held on the first Saturday of every month. $2 admission will be collected at the door to help fund this and future events (children 12 years and under get in FREE).

What is IndieSacramento?
The purpose behind IndieSacramento is to help spread the word about locally owned businesses and to help Sacramento gain the reputation it deserves as a city with cutting-edge design, fashion, and handmade goods — plus great local shopping and eats. Local businesses, fashion designers, and crafters are challenging shoppers to stimulate the local economy by purchasing unique gifts from local boutiques and designers, instead of hitting the malls this holiday season.

IndieSacramento will feature approximately 40 independent designers from the Sacramento area and beyond. Local bands will provide entertainment. Craft workshops and demos will teach new skills and encourage creativity among patrons. We will also offer free swag bags to the first 150 patrons, free crafts for the kids, a fashion show, door prizes, and refreshments.

When: Saturday, December 6, 2008, 10am-6pm
Where: Near Sutter's Fort at 27th & K streets, Midtown Sacramento (Please check the website for exact location)
Admission: $2 per person or $1 with a canned food item. Ages 12 and under are FREE.
