Social Scene: Hester Street Fair – East Coast Meets West Coast

Nothing says summer like ice cold beer, outdoor concerts, block parties and street food. Luckily for us, the Hester Street Fair has it all. Throw in some curated artisanal shopping to boot and you’ve got yourself a summer party. Hailing from New York City, HSF has expanded to the streets of LA, bringing with it some East Coast swag and shwag.

Featuring a seedy yet oh-so-lush beer garden, booming soundstage, grub-worthy food trucks and trendy jewels and threads, it was an awesome way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon that was almost as easy as Sunday morning. With that said, it looks like the East Coast just helped the West Coast be the Best Coast.

Dates are running through Summer so be sure to check it out and represent:

JULY 7th, 2pm – 10pm
Hollywood Night Market

AUGUST 18th, 11am – 7pm
Indie Craft Market

AUGUST 25th, 11am – 7pm
Goodnight Hollywood Blvd. Music Festival

Below are some pics from the shindig but the vendors that stood out to me most were:

  1. Janie XY – whose handmade stuffed toy foods and pets are so friggin adorable, they make you want to buy them as gifts but end up keeping them for yourself
  2. Fleet – an eclectic and crafty girlfriend duo sewing up some flirty dresses and chunky jewelry
  3. Frigate Ties – an ingenious, bright (both intellectually and color wise) and practical twist on ties that make you exclaim, “Why the hell didn’t I think of that?!”
