NEXT GEN DESIGNERS: Youth FAIR | Carlisle Building - 445 N. High Street, 10 am – 4 pm

Bring your young fashionistas and let’s have some fun! We've got participatory activities for kids, teens, adults, and up & coming designers of all levels! Separate activities for young kids through teenagers.

 

FREE ADMISSION with free and ticketed events & activities.

 

Ticketed events:

  • Upcycle Design Contest: Kids' version of "Project Runway" -- we'll give the kids some garments to restyle, and let them model their creations in a walk-off to determine the winner.  Kids can enter into little kids or young adults categories. Construction starts at 11:30. First walk-off is at 12:30
     

  • Button Making: Kickstart your inner design talent by making your own buttons (super fun for the kids -- parents dig it, too!).

  • Tattoos: Express your personal style by getting inked in our tattoo booth (temporary, of course).

​​

  • Teen room: Older kids can explore sewing techniques and learn from a professional designer how to use a machine.​​​​​

  • Collaborative Art Project: Be a part of a collaborative art-fashion project and paint on a dress created by one of our local fashion designers, which will be displayed in town.

 

Free events:

  • Fashion Show: Kids' fashions by local designers. 
     

  • Hair Tutorials: Parents, man up! Learn how to help your darlings look even MORE adorable with our kids' hairstyles tutorials.

  • Art Project: Kids (and their parents) can try their hand at design with fashion plate​​.

 

PLUS:

  • Snacks! Food & drink vendors on hand. No one likes a hangry toddler. (Or a hangry adult -- let's face it.)
     

  • Free stuff! Hourly giveaways for activity tickets and goods.
