Apply for 2016 DIY Festival by Jan. 31
Saturday, February 27 from 1-4 p.m.
Main Library
68 Calhoun St., downtown Charleston

The third annual Charleston DIY Festival is a community-led event that opens up the library space to local artists, makers, tinkerers and organizations who wish to share their knowledge and skills with others through creativity and interaction. 

Do you have something to contribute to the DIY Festival? Consider participating in one of the following ways:

Demonstrate an activity, a business or a craft at an instructional table in the library's auditorium. While there is no fee for a booth, if you intend to sell goods during the event, 20% of proceeds go to our Friends of the Library, and only cash sales are accepted.

Lectures: Host a short seminar in one of our meeting rooms on a topic related to DIY or Maker culture.

Live Music: Do you play music? We are seeking local musicians to play in the auditorium during the festival. 

Applications will be accepted from December 15, 2015 - January 31, 2016.
