Indie Reno is growing and so is our clout. We are getting more and more press and people actually know who we are (woohoo!). As a group, we are able to negotiate with some of the bigger events, where as individuals we may not have a chance of participating in. For example, this weekend on June 30th we will have a row of booths at the 2nd annual Reno Block Party. For pretty much all of us, the entry fee would have been out of our league, but the organizers not only gave us a price break, but are allowing nine of us to share a six-tent block to create an "Indie Reno Boutique". Among the other events we are involved in, we organize the art vendors at the original Food Truck Fridays held every first Friday at City Center. We were recently the featured group of craft vendors at the Great Basin Food Co-Op's grand opening event. And we are very proud and excited to be asked to be the exclusive artisan group for the Crafters Row section of the Great Reno Balloon races this September!
Our host for the Indie Reno Artisan Market was The Holland Project. The Holland Project is an art gallery/music venue/classroom/place of nurturing, dedicated to encouraging creativity among our younger generation.
If you are a Northern Nevada artist or craftsperson, we'd love for you to be a part of Indie Reno!
