Hammer & Stitch Brewing Hosts The Makers Fair – Summer Edition

The Makers Fair returns to Slabtown on Saturday, July 30 in front of Hammer & Stitch Brewing from Noon – 6:00pm. For this second presentation of The Makers Fair, Hammer & Stitch has partnered with Assemblage for an afternoon of beer, food, live music, art, goods and some absolutely amazing artisans

Here are additional details on The Makers Fair – Summer Edition from the organizers.

The fun starts at noon on Saturday, July 30. A collective of 30+ of the most talented makers in Portland will take over the entire block in front of Hammer & Stitch Brewing Co. Shop the gorgeous ceramics of Bridgetown Sparrow, plant and self-care products from Organics X Oddidies, perfectly imperfect art & jewelry from Luna Wolf Creations, plant-based skin care and candles from Niyyah Handcrafted, CBD wellness items from Fender’s Blue Hemp, camping must-haves from Trailside Table plus Filipino goods and sweets from Shop Halo Halo among many others.

This summer event also features free live music at Hammer & Stitch. The lineup includes Laryssa Birdseye (1-2pm), Madison Shanley (2:30-3:30pm) and Bruce & Christine Powers (4-5pm). Tables in the brewery will be first-come, first-served, but all are welcome to pop in and enjoy the music throughout the day.

No proper Portland maker celebration would be complete without refreshing craft beers. Head to Hammer & Stitch for meticulously-crafted STANDARDS and limited-edition CREATIONS including Sun Juice, a perfectly balanced hazy IPA with a touch of tangerine. Slabtown neighbors Freeland Spirits and Hip Chicks Do Wine will be on hand with other boozy delights.

Some of Portland’s best food vendors are joining The Makers Fair. Enjoy satisfying slices from Pizza Thief, island-inspired Asian Fusion from Pidgin Hole and Mexican street food desserts by Maruka Loka. Hammer & Stitch Brewing Company offers a full food menu as well, starring the Slabtown favorite Blue Collar Burger with JoJos.

The Makers Fair is a collaboration between Assemblage (formerly Makers Union PDX) and Hammer & Stitch Brewing Company. Their first annual event on October 9, 2021 was wildly successful with over 30 local makers and 1,600 people attending. Assemblage was developed to support our community by producing events, fairs and workshops featuring the local makers, builders, creators and artists of the Pacific Northwest. About half of the participating Assemblage makers represent the BIPOC and LGBTQQIA2S+ communities.

The Makers Fair runs from noon-6pm on July 30 on NW Wilson Street (between 23rd and 24th in Slabtown). The event is free and family-friendly. Celebrate the maker community by supporting local artisans at this summer edition block party!
