Making old into new with a spoonful of sugar and a pinch of sassafras.
Polka Dot Parade combines vintage and craft with a nod to all things old and historical, Victorian to mod. Reanna, the owner of Polka Dot Parade holds to the philosophy to buy vintage, buy handmade, buy up-cycled, buy recycled. There are so many great things that already exist that there is no need to buy new. Many vintage and handmade items are one of a kind and rare, individual – just like you!
“It all makes me smile and feel happy inside. You know those scenes in movies where someone is rollin’ around on a bed of money and they are ecstatic? I would be rollin’ around in rhinestone jewelry, circle skirts, and kitschy salt & pepper shakers.”
About Curtis Fest
Curtis Fest returns to William Curtis Park on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 60 artisans are expected to show their work at the 11th annual event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the north end of the park under the beautiful tree canopy. Curtis Fest has become a Sacramento favorite, and many premier artists have joined the lineup this year.
This free, public event includes food from award winning chef Keith Breedlove of the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck along with delicious street tacos from the Turnt Up food truck. John Merriman, Dianna and the Cherry Kings and the Ranell Carpenter Band will perform.
An expanded petting zoo returns this year as well as the climbing station, and the children’s fairy. Curtis Fest will be followed by Music in the Park from 6-8 p.m.
