Jackalope Arts has taken a hold in Pasadena and committed to the long haul.

At the beginning of 2015, Sara Vausbinder, Laura Fischer, and Melissa Shipley decided to leave their jobs and create art-centered events. Now, most folks would start slowly, build each event slowly year by year—don’t bite off too much too quickly—but no. Right out of the gate, Jackalope Arts was to be hosted in not only Pasadena, but Phoenix and Denver too. Go big or go home, as a friend of ours used to say. Sara, Laura, and Melissa rose to the challenge.

In April 2015, we chatted with co-founder Vausbinder who heads the Pasadena event (read the full article here). For the inaugural Jackalope Art & Crafts Fair, she’d been hoping for around 200 vendors. They ended up with close to three hundred. A friend of ours who exhibited gave the organization and vendors high praise—the level of quality, especially for a first-time event, she considered fantastic and remarkable.

This weekend, April 30 and May 1, the Jackalope Art and Crafts Fair fills Central Park once again. Besides vendors, food is available for purchase and workshops are on the program (see below), including activities led by Pasadena’s Color Me Mine and SPACE from South Pasadena.

Local vendors and artists include Fur & Thicket, Artistry Industrial, Deakin Handmade, No Tox Life, Melanie Hopper, Dany Paragouteva,  and Alicia Gorecki (we covet her work and paper cutouts).

From home decor to fashion, jewelry to photography, and ceramics to paper goods, Jackalope has a lot to enjoy, inspire, and will drain the wallet (happily, of course).
