Upcoming Shows

Over the years, Patchwork has grown from a small parking lot craft fair into multiple locations including street festivals and large indoor marketplaces. Each location is as different and unique as the venue and showcases different makers, collaborations, music and food that reflect the local environment and community. Patchwork Show features 160+ local vendors selling diverse handmade goods (see our gallery for a closer look), curated food trucks, DIY stations to get your craft on,food artisan area, live music and rotating services like photo booths, bike valet and gift-wrapping depending on the location and season.

All Patchwork Show events are FREE to the public.

Where it all started… Patchwork Show Santa Ana is our first location and our biggest event drawing thousands of customers for over seven years. In 2012, we moved our event to downtown in the heart of the Artists Village next to our friends The Gypsy Den, Lola’s, Little Sparrow, Grand Central Arts Center and El Centro Cultural de Mexico. This urban and historical setting encompasses three different streets and incorporates local galleries, museums and a handful of restaurants and bars.

Long Beach Patchwork show is located on the water’s edge at Marine Stadium at the boat slip off Appian Way. This very pet-friendly event is the perfect spot for an afternoon with your four-legged friend and it is also very popular with cyclists. Long Beach Patchwork is our largest event featuring 200+ vendors, multiple music stages and bike valet.

OAKLAND

November 16, 2014 – Jack London Square – 55 Harrison Street – Oakland, California – 11-5pm

Patchwork’s Northern California event draws on the East Bay’s strong artistic community and commitment to support local commerce for our largest indoor festival. Our venue, Jack London Square, is not only right on the water but features a Sunday farmers market where you can shop for local organic produce or grab a snack from the market’s artisan food vendors. Jack London Square features several restaurants (we love the shortbread cookies at Miette) and a modern hotel with live jazz on the weekends. We’re honored to be a part of the handmade movement in Oakland, a city that embraces all things local and creative.
