The first ever Crafty Bastards Cabin Fever is this Saturday from 10am-7pm at the Hecht Warehouse (1401 New York Ave). Tickets are available at different levels: $25 for a VIP pass that gets you early admission (10am), a Crafty Bastards tote bag, a bagel, and a mimosa; $15 for the Savvy Shopper that includes a tote bag and entry at 11am; $10 general admission starting at 1pm, and the late general admission (3pm) and last call general admission (5pm) that cost $5 each. Kids 12 years of age and younger are admitted free. Strollers will not be allowed into the main event space (the organizers encourage the use of baby carriers instead).
Thankfully, Crafty Bastards Cabin Fever will be held indoors. They've got over 100 vendors for the one day affair, and some of those are first timers at Crafty Bastards. You can find them all on the map and directory, or get a sneak peek in the vendor gallery.
It's probably dawned on you that this is nowhere near a Metro station. Fear not! They've got free shuttles running regularly from the NoMa station.
Shuttle: 9:30am to 7:30pm to and from the NoMa station to the Hecht Warehouse.
Bus Access: Crafty Bastards Cabin Fever is accessible by the Ivy City-Dupont Circle (D3), Ivy City-Franklin Square (D4), and Ivy City-Fort Totten (E2) Metrobus lines.
Capital Bikeshare: The closest station is located outside Hecht Warehouse across from MOM's Organic Market on Hecht Avenue.
Parking: Limited parking is available in the garage above MOM's Organic Market. Access the garage via Okie Street
