Beatrice Valenzuela and Rachel Craven founded the Echo Park Craft Fair in 2009.

Originally held in Valenzuela’s backyard, the Echo Park Craft Fair has grown into a popular bi-annual arts and design event, now held at the historic 5,000 square foot Mark Sennett studios in Silverlake, CA. The most recent Echo Park Craft Fair hosted over 3000 guests and featured 70 artists selling everything from jewelry to clothing, ceramics to weavings, fresh flowers to cold-pressed organic juices.
This weekend Valerie Confections will be outside at the fair selling coffee, tea, sandwiches, salads and pastries and we'll be inside selling gifts and chocolates. Please stop by and get a treat while you're perusing all of the wonderful artists at the fair!
