Join us on Saturday, April 7th from 11am-4pm and SPRING into SUSTAINABILITY!

Originally called Mayfest, we recently rebranded this event to better represent what it is all about which is promoting and supporting green and sustainable initiatives!  As a re-purposed, industrial building, the Pajama Factory itself is a GREEN initiative!  With over 100 artists, makers, and entrepreneurs, we believe that community IS sustainability and wanted an event to celebrate just THAT.

  • We will be launching a Pajama Factory App!  This app will help you navigate through the Factory and will feature the different artist and community studios hosting the Wild Goose Chase Door Prize sign-up sheet.
  • Factory Works programs such as the Community Woodshop, Clay Studio and Sewing lab will be sharing program information and hosting demos!
    • Bicycle Recycle will be hosting an Open House!  To celebrate their GRAND opening in their NEW location, Bicycle Recycle will be offering free, bike safety checks for neighborhood kids and selling recycled bike artwork!
