It’s true! You read correctly! Amidst the snowmageddon of the past week we have all lived to tell another ‘remember the snow’ tale in years to come but now…it’s back to work!!

The 6th Annual Holiday Alternative Gift Fair has come and gone and we all lived through an expected blizzard that never actually eventuated. We braved slushy roads and slushy footpaths to load in brilliant wares for people to take home for their loved ones this holiday season and although numbers were down from last year, people turned out and left with arms filled with their new purchases. It was a fun, beautiful day that was made complete by the happy, smiling faces that turned out with their little red noses.
Thank you one and all for making this a favorite show of ours as well as many of our vendors and attendees. We are happy to hear feedback about, leave us a comment here and we will take it all into consideration as we begin work on our next show – May 10th…just in time for Mother’s Day!
Happy holidays to you and yours and remember, buying from a local mom & pop business helps maintain our economy, keeps art alive and well and sure makes you more good looking.
In 2 hours we open the doors for our wonderful vendors to start loading in and at 10am the lights will go up, the music will go on and the 6th Annual Alternative Gift Fair will take place!
Free parking is available at School 57 cnr Ritter & Washington and there will be plenty of street parking available too
Don’t forget your non perishable food donation for local area food banks and we will see your bright, shiny faces from 10am – 4pm TODAY!
Saturday December 14th we will host the Alternative Gift Fair at The Irving Theater, Indianapolis. Applications are now being accepted from handmade, local artists and small local retailers (with a focus on handmade) who wish to be a part of this years juried fair.
We are excited to see all your work and applications will close October 7th. We generally have far more applications that we can accept and hope that you get your applications in early!
We are busily finalizing the details for the Xmas Alternative Gift Fair and will have applications online early August. Already the buzz for the show is off the hook and we anticipate having a record number of applicants. We are working on a few other ideas for shows this year and will announce them here as they are realized.
We are desperately awaiting the return of Spring and with it will come the first annual Alternative Gift Fair – Spring Edition. Held on Saturday May 11th at the Irving Theater it’s the first of what, we hope, will become a thriving part of the Irvington Community. Our spring edition has already attracted a record number of vendor applications and we will feature 40 handmade, local vendors for you to peruse and purchase directly from the day before Mother’s Day!
For the first time this year, Celebrate Irvington will also take place on Saturday May 11th. Featuring fine artists, children’s activities and local community groups along Washington St, Celebrate Irvington will show you the side of Irvington, that perhaps, you have not seen before.
Our May Show will be proudly sponsored by:
