Renegade Craft Fair: SXSW EditionShowcasing the best in independent handmade goods, Renegade Craft Fair has quickly established itself as an international destination for innovative, quality design. The inaugural Renegade Craft Fair: SXSW Edition brings all this and more to the Palmer Events Center during SXSW Music. Swing by from 12-8pm Today–Saturday to browse a curated collection of over 200 makers and experience breathtaking art installations, artisan demonstrations, family-friendly activities and much more.
