After a decade of fun and highly anticipated annual Indie Craft Fairs, we have burst the seams of our home venue and are moving this year’s RIOT Rooster to the fabulous Virginia Museum of Transportation in downtown Roanoke! Can we get a big Whooo Hooooo!

Always the weekend before Thanksgiving this year’s RIOT Rooster will be a FRIDAY ONLY event from 4pm-Midnight on November 22nd. Not only is admission FREE for attendees but includes full admission to the entire Museum including Cactus Joe Choo-Choo rides, Macaroni Kids Craft Area, Food Trucks, Craft Beverages and many more surprises to come!

A curated A-list of Indie Craft Makers and Purveyors of handmade goodness of all varieties will be in every nook and cranny throughout the museum inside and out. Known to be a shopping extravaganza of one-of-a-kind items for yourself and gifts this Indie Craft Bazaar feels like and old-world-style night market with a vibe of color and warmth just perfect to begin the Season of cosmic abundance and giving thanks!

Bring ALL your friends and family. Ages 0-Infinity welcome!
Our motto is ’Come Early and Stay Late!'

We will have many areas to hang, soak up the vibe and enjoy--with tons of kids activities and seasonal goodies, noms and libations. There is nothing like the person to person exchange in a market such as this; it supports our local economy but goes well beyond dollars and cents!
Here’s to 2019! Get your RIOT Rooster on!
