For many, glue, glitter, paint, and other messy creative activities were an everyday part of summertime during their formative years. The Renegade Craft Fair is providing a chance to relive some of those memories while providing learning and shopping opportunities with more than 200 artisan vendors and educational craft-making workshops. Wordsmiths will share a few yarns at Fireside Storytelling, and shutterbugs with a passion for Lomography are gathering for Cowboy in Chinatown: Double Exposure Walk. Expect a few laughs and WTF moments at OMFG! The Internet Dating Musical and a sizzling good time at the San Francisco Bacon Takedown. The Reverend Horton Heat is in town for weekend services and Sunday Streets returns at the Great Highway.
