Crafty Bastards Does Food
Roadside Food Projects worked closely with the Washington City Paper to develop the first ever Crafty Bastards Farm – as an extension of the much lauded 8th annual arts-and-crafts fair. The program was created to uncover Washington’s little known craft food scene. The inaugural program featured a D.I.Y. Salon showcasing some of the area’s best culinary talent, a Crafty Food Market featuring independent food crafters from the across the region, and a Crafty Food Awards to crown the city’s best brewers, picklers, and preservers. Roadside Food Projects developed the entire series of events to capture the spirit of Crafty Bastards, secured a veritable cast of talent for the DIY Salon and Judging Panel, partnered with FoodSpotting on a social media activation, and integrated financial sponsors into the program.
