Renegade Craft Fair

07.15.11

As if there aren't enough temptations to brave Carmegeddon, the 3rd Annual Renegade Craft Fair is descending on Los Angeles State Historical Park this weekend.

From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day you can enjoy the free event, complete with food trucks, beer, crafts and creativity everywhere.

Probably not the best choice for your school-aged children, but the event will also feature the debut of Mischief Brigade! Mishief Brigade was co-founded by an OC native and two college friends who love the adorable, heavily armed, red cup swigging teddy bears that define the new company. Complete with hand-printed American Apparel shirts, pins and even beer koozies, their new company is hoping to convert the masses this weekend.

To check out Mischief Brigade and the hundreds of other vendors at Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, Los Angeles State Historical Park is located at 1245 North Spring Street in Los Angeles, just north of Chinatown.
