South Gaylord Street 

Washington Park, Denver

We are excited to announce that for the first time our Summer Market will be held on historic Old South Gaylord Street in Denver’s Washington Park!

 

The weekend features:

- 100+ indie artisans

- Outdoor cocktails, beer, and wine

- Live music

- Local shops, restaurants, and bars

- Free admission

 

Firefly Handmade is Colorado’s inspired indie art experience. We are a community of makers, entrepreneurs, and artists who are passionate about sharing craft and supporting local business. Grab a drink from one of our outdoor bars and discover unique handmade home goods, jewelry & accessories, adult & children's fashion, skin care, ceramics, art, artisanal food, paper goods, pet goods, and more.

 

Come enjoy one of Denver’s most charming shopping districts, just blocks from the park.  Centrally located between Cherry Creek to the north and I-25 to the south, the neighborhood and surrounding communities are easily accessible and characterized by the many young families and restored historic homes in a densely populated area. 


See why Buzzfeed named Firefly Handmade one of the “craft fairs every creative person needs to visit” and why Pop Shop America says Firefly is a “totally unique series of events.”
